The title track from his latest solo album "4.44" boldly carries the theme about unfaithfulness. Apart from bringing Jay-Z 8 Grammy nominations, this song may have had saved his marriage. As Jay-Z openly says in his interview, it was the musical collaboration that acted as couples' therapy for him and Beyoncé. It made them confront and acknowledge their problems in the best way they knew how - through lyrics and music.
