JAY-Z dropped the hotly anticipated album 4:44 on Friday. The 10-track album included the titular Beyoncé apology track and "Smile," which featured Jay's mother coming out as a lesbian. One song that seemed to be missing was "Adnis," which we heard a snippet of in a trailer for the album starring Mahershala Ali. The song is named after his father, and the song seems to address Jay's dad directly. "Letter to my dad that I never wrote/Speeches I prepared that I never spoke," Jay raps in the trailer.

Despite not being included on the TIDAL version of the album, fans who want to hear the song might be in luck. On Friday night, Hov's longtime engineer Gimel "Young Guru" Keaton tweeted that "Adnis" will be on physical copies of 4:44.


Young Guru also hinted at the possibility of other unreleased tracks appearing on the physical copies.

There is currently no release date set for physical copies of 4:44, but the album will reportedly be available on streaming platforms like Apple Music as early as next week.
