On “Adnis”, Jay pens an open letter to his late father Adnis “AJ” Reeves, who passed away from liver failure on June 19, 2003.
On Father’s Day 2017, JAY-Z dropped a snippet from “Adnis” to build hype for his 13th studio album "4:44", ahead of its release on June 30th. The physical copies of the album, released July 7th, feature “Adnis” as a bonus track.
The track snippet came on the heels of the announcement that his wife, Beyoncé, delivered the couple's twins on Father’s Day. This fact is especially poignant when considering that healing his relationship with his estranged father meant Hov could be in a stable relationship with Bey:
"As a gift I would love for our generation and all the people that grew up without their parents, whether you knew them early on or not, is to have that conversation so you could let that anger go. Because that’s the sort of anger that keeps you from love—it makes you put up walls and you don’t let people get close to you, because you don’t ever want to feel that feeling of abandonment or that feeling of hurt again, so you don’t let certain people close to you."
