Speculation about the existence of Jay Z’s next album has been running rampant over the last year. Ever since his wife Beyonce dropped her masterpiece Lemonade, Hov fans and the Beyhive alike have been openly wondering about if and when the Jiggaman might address some of the content brought up in that record. The talk has only gotten hotter these last few weeks after he announced a few different festival performances later this year at both his own event Made In America in Philadelphia, as well as Austin City Limits.
Now, thanks to Swizz Beatz, the speculation is about to go into overdrive. The influential producer and frequent Jay collaborator recently shared a picture on his Instagram of himself stepping out with the Roc Nation boss with a caption that read, “They don’t even know what’s about to happen 😂😂😂🙏🏽 Album ModeZone.”
That’s not exactly concrete evidence that Jay is about to unleash his 13th studio album, but its the clearest indication yet that something is on the way. Swizz has been working with Jay for a long, long time, going all the way back to “Money Cash Hoes,” in 1999. Though he hasn’t entered the studio with him on a frequent basis in quite some time, the idea of the two creating new music together surely has to have fans of both artists very excited.
