JAY Z Changes His Name, Formats It To All Caps
Way back in 2013, music legend JAY-Z dropped the hyphen in his name and officially became known as “Jay Z” but, in a move made noticeably by the announcement of his soon-to-be-released visual album, the proud dad of three has added the hyphen back.
He has also formatted the name to be all caps.
According to a short statement made available by his publicist to Entertainment Weekly:
It’s been a big few weeks for Jay Z. He scored a loving tribute from the former president, his wife, Beyoncé, gave birth to twins, and he’s got a new album coming soon. Along with that album comes a more front-facing bit of news: Jay Z is changing his name again.
Just as he dropped the hyphen (becoming “Jay Z” instead of “Jay-Z”) after 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, EW has confirmed that Jay Z has once again changed the stylization of his name ahead of his upcoming visual album 4:44.
“Jay Z” is now a relic of the past, consigned to the dustbin of history. In its place stands JAY-Z, now with the hyphen back in its place and the whole name in all-caps.
Long live JAY-Z.
So far the 47-year-old rapper’s Wikipedia page has been updated and international media outlets have switched to the new name.
