Jay-Z trended on social media on April Fool’s Day after he allegedly dropped a tracklist of his new album featuring Nasty C
Some music lovers believed that Jay-Z was about to drop the album (titled Ascension) while others knew it was just a prank
Jay-Z’s name trended high on Twitter on April Fool’s Day, 1 April after an alleged tracklist for his new album featuring African rappers went viral on the app.
Even Nasty C took to Instagram and shared the tracklist of the US rapper’s “new album” titled Ascension. The 16-track album features other US superstars such as Beyoncé, H.E.R and Rick Ross.
The Africa-themed project also features big artists from the African continent including Nasty C, Olamide, Sakordie and Femi Kuti.
Nasty C took to Instagram late on Thursday and posted the tracklist. He did not caption it. He has since deleted the post.
