No I.D. Says Beyonce Played An A&R Role On Jay-Z’s “4:44” Album


The New York Times recently sat down with legendary producer and producer of Jay-Z‘s 4:44 album, No I.D.

The interview covered a wide array of topics, but one that stuck out was the role Beyonce played on the album.

When asked about Beyonce‘s role, No I.D. had this to say:

I always call Bey our de facto A&R. Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet. Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes. 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.
