Jay Z announced a new album, 4:44, which will drop June 30.

Jay Z’s busy summer just got even busier.

Just a day after news broke that he was the father of twins, the rapper announced late Sunday night that his new album will drop on Tidal on June 30.

A short, 30-second video titled “ADNIS” shows “Moonlight” star Mahershala Ali hitting a punching bag held by a trainer, played Danny Glover.

“Letter to my dad that I never wrote/Speeches I prepared that I never spoke/Words on a paper that I never read/Prose is never penned, they stayed in my head,” Jay Z raps behind the video.

Jay Z might have a new album coming, if these 4:44 ads are true

There’s little other information about the album, but the rapper has been teasing fans for weeks with 4:44 ads on music websites and around Manhattan, but wouldn’t reveal what they meant. Pitchfork reported that the trailer is part of a longer film "4:44," that stars Ali, Glover and Lupita Nyong'o.
