UPDATE (March 12, 2020): Amidst the growing COVID-19 pandemic, Jay Electronica and TIDAL were forced to cancel their in-person listening sessions. Instead, Jay Electronica will hold his own virtual listening session tonight at 8 p.m. PST on his YouTube channel and Instagram account.
For years, fans, journalists and listeners alike joked that Jay Electronica’s debut album was this generation’s Detox. Fortunately, we will soon be able to hear his highly-anticipated album after years of waiting. Last month, he announced that he was finished recording his latest project, A Written Testimony.
As expected, the announcement was met with skepticism. To be fair, the lyricist has only released six songs since Act 1: Eternal Sunshine. He’s also only done about a dozen features in that time period as well.
It’s time. We're giving @JayElectronica fans an exclusive first listen of his album 'A Written Testimony' with 3 intimate events in NY, LA, & New Orleans.

However, he has quieted some of the skepticism down thanks to photos of him in the studio and co-signs from Jay-Z about the progress of the project. Adding on, Electronica has announced that he is partnering with TIDAL for special album listening events.
“We’re giving Jay Electronica fans an exclusive first listen of his album A Written Testimony with 3 intimate events,” TIDAL tweeted.
The album listening sessions will take place tomorrow in New Orleans, New York and Los Angeles. For those interested in attending, feel free to RSVP here. If not, be sure to stay tuned because his new album is on the way.
