JAY-Z‘s producer No I.D. is opening up about the rapper’s wife Beyonce‘s involvement on his new album 4:44, which was released over the weekend and is now available as a free download.
“I always call Bey our de facto A&R,” No I.D. told the New York Times in a new interview. “Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet.”
“Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes,” he added. “She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records. Of course she’s genius-level with that.”
Beyonce is featured on the song “Family Feud” through her background vocals.
