It’s been a big week for Jay Z or ‘JAY-Z’ as he would now like to be known as. But considering what he’s achieved recently perhaps the ALL CAPS is in order!


Saturday June 15th: JAY-Z becomes the 1st ever hip hop artist to be inducted into the prestigious ‘Songwriters Hall of Fame’ & receives a congratulations video message from Barak Obama.


Monday June 19th: JAY-Z’s wife Beyonce Knowles announces the arrival of the couple’s twins. The new arrivals were said to be born a week ago but due to complications the pair waited till everything was all good before announcing the news.

Tuesday June 20th: JAY-Z announces his new album will be released next week! The new release 4:44 is said to lyrically reflect on the rappers thoughts and feelings post Beyonce’s controversial album Lemonade. So that should be interesting to say the least!


Either way it’s been a huge week for the artist formally known as Jay Z and it’s not over yet so who knows what other surprises the legendary rapper & entrepreneur might have up his sleeve.

In the meantime Asia Pop 40 will pay homage to the power couple by featuring their first ever collaboration Crazy In Love as this week’s Asia Pop 40 Backtrack.
