Roc Nation Senior Vice President Lenny S has updated fans on what’s to come from his team including potential new Jay Z music.
Although Lenny said there is no green light yet on a new Jigga album, the music executive spoke on more songs dropping.
“Be excited about more Khaled stuff coming. He’s about to release a book and is focused on film and television next year. Be excited about, sh*t, maybe Jay will get the bug to do music again. Who knows? Obviously, nothing confirmed, but some the verses he’s put out — he did the Pusha T thing [‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’], he did the Fat Joe thing [‘All the Way Up’], he did the Khaled thing [‘I Got the Keys] — it’s exciting.” (Rap-Up)
Back in August, Roc Nation’s Vic Mensa talked about hearing new Jay music.
“They’re just smart people, really good people. That’s something I find as I meet more people in this industry: some the top dogs are the kindest and in a sense most humble. A lot people feel themselves when they don’t really have a right to. Hov and Beyoncé are people that I’ve seen, on mad occasions, just be real cool to people that they don’t know. Beyoncé has that queen personality where she makes people feel comfortable. Well, I mean, she probably makes people feel mad uncomfortable because they’re super fans, but she’s super cool to people that I’ve seen her interact with and she always has been really nice to me. As far as music, all I can say is that Beyoncé’s tour and her album are amazing. I’ve heard a little bit some Hov sh*t and it’s fresh as f*ck, but I can’t say anything about anything else.” (Rap-Up)
Recently, music mogul Jermaine Dupri announced Jigga has a follow-up to 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album coming.
“Me and Jay have, like, conversations that I’m sure I’m probably sure he don’t have with nobody else because that’s how we met each other,” JD said. “Our relationship from ‘Money Ain’t A Thing’ came from him taking something on a mixtape that I heard that he did repeating, ‘I’m gonna make you dance,’ something he said that sounded like what I did on the Dru Hill [song ‘In My Bed’] like, ‘Oh, dude be listening to me.’ I’m thinking this is, ‘Can’t Knock The Hustle’ dude – I’ve spoken to Hov, even at the Beyoncé concert. I know the name Hov’s new album and everything right now. [laughs] Yeah, like, me and him, we’re good. [Will I get a beat on there?] It might be done. I’m just saying. I don’t know.” (Rap Radar)
A few months ago, reports claimed Jay had finished up an album with R&B wife Beyoncé.
Sources confirmed exclusively to Page Six that Jay and Bey’s surprise album is complete, and it will drop on his streaming service Tidal very soon. One source told us, “Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after ‘Lemonade.’ It’s more their style to respond through music.” (Page Six)
