This makes the success even sweeter.
Jay-Z's new album "4:44" is a success not only with his fans, but much closer to home as well.
According to CNN, "4:44" had Queen Bey directly involved in the creation process, despite lyrics that directly address the rumors of infidelity she raised on Lemonade. According to producer No I.D., Queen Bey was their "de facto A&R."
"Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet. Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes," explains No I.D. "She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records," he told The Times. "Of course she's genius-level with that."
