JAY-Z’s new album has been hailed as one of his best in years and now most of you (without Tidal or Sprint cellular service) can hear it for yourself.

The already platinum 4:44 album has been made available on Amazon and Apple Music, but not (as of this posting) available on Spotify.

This comes after a one-week exclusivity period, during which “4:44” was only available to subscribers of Tidal, the Jay-Z owned streaming platform, and Sprint customers (the mobile carrier invested $200 million in Tidal earlier this year).

A physical release of 4:44 is also planned, with additional tracks. One of the bonus tracks includes a freestyle by daughter Blue Ivy, who spits some baby bars in a song entitled, “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family”.

In addition, JAY-Z also released “The Story of O.J.” video which he co-directed with Mark Romanek.
