Is JAY-Z & Solange’s Elevator Fight Behind ‘4:44’ Album?

When JAY-Z released 4:44 a couple of weeks ago, the world no longer had to speculate about his relationship with Beyoncé. The raw, gritty and honest album not only confirmed rumors of his alleged infidelities but offered listeners a much-needed dose of true hip hop.

What hasn’t been talked about much is the meaning behind the album.

But one Twitter user may have pieced together the reason—or part of it for that matter—behind 4:44.

“I’m at The Standard where Soland beat Jay-Z’s ass in the elevator,” user @StephenOssola tweeted. “THE ADDRESS IS 444. I AM SHOOK”

The tweet prompted others to conduct their own little investigation into the correlations, with one user saying the address was a gift shop.

But @DJBooth confirmed the address did in fact belong to the hotel.

It’s been years since JAY-Z and Solange’s physical encounter following a Met Gala Party, the two went at it in the Elevator of Le Bain at the Standard Hotel in NYC, and video surveillance footage caught them on camera.

While neither party has disclosed the reason behind the spat, it was rumored that JAY-Z’s infidelity was to blame. According to reports, the album was named after the street address of the elevator fight, 444 W. 13th St.

Hmmm. Interesting.
