The leak of a song on Wednesday (January 30), allegedly belongs to Jay-Z, has prompted speculations that the rapper will release a new album very soon. The single titled 'Ain't I' is reportedly the first single from Jay-Z's forthcoming album, 'Blueprint 3'.
It was DJ Clue who first introduced the song, saying "New Jay-Z...off that Blueprint 3 baby." It can also be found on Clue's mixtape, 'I Am Legend Part 1'. The song is a Timbaland-produced which reportedly has been recorded over a year ago. Words are rife that it is a material that Timbaland mentioned before, about to go to his album 'Timbaland Presents Shock Value' but did not make the cut.
However, the release of 'Blueprint 3' is doubted to be so soon, because Jay-Z's latest effort 'American Gangster' is still spawning singles and its promotion is still running hot. Furthermore, MTV contacted the rapper's rep who later explained the status of the single as an old song that got unreleased. The rep also said that 'Blueprint 3' or any other new album is not in line to be announced.
