Jay Z Is Changing His Name Again & We Can't Keep Up

You'd think what with having two brand new, tiny babies plus a four-year-old and Beyoncé to look after that Jay Z would have enough on his plate.

But the rapper has officially changed his name - again - as he prepares to drop his new album, 4:44.

Obviously it's only going to be available on Mr Carter's streaming service but if you DO happen to fork out for the pleasure of having Tidal, you'll have to make sure you're searching for the right name.

Now it's a slightly complicated change, so we'll try and make it as clear as possible. Ready?

Jay Z will now formally be known as... drumroll please... JAY-Z.


That's all capital letters, and the hyphen is back.

Genius. Magic. Life-changing stuff, Jay.

4:44 drops June 30, but you can check out a sneak peek of what we can expect below.
