After years of waiting, Jay Electronica has finally shared his debut album. Listen to ‘A Written Testimony’ below which features contributions from JAY-Z (on nearly every track), James Blake, Travis Scott, Khruangbin, and The-Dream—below. The album was recorded over 40 days and 40 nights, starting from December 26, 2019, and includes appearances from Travis Scott and The-Dream, as well as production from NO I.D., Swizz Beatz, Hit-Boy, The Alchemist and Khruangbin. A Written Testimony , arguably one of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of this generation, it just adds to the quality music we have had this year.
On February 7, the rapper announced on twitter his next album would be out “in 40 days.” Jay Electronica’s only other official release was his 2007 mixtape Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), and he had teased a follow-up for more than a decade. Jay Electronica and JAY-Z remixed Drake’s track “We Made It” back in 2014.
