JAY-Z Samples Defend Again on 4:44

We’re elated to be a part of JAY-Z’s magnificent new album “4:44.” The title track “4:44” prominently features a sample of Hannah Williams & The Affirmations’ soul scorcher “Late Nights and Heartbreak,” written by Kanan Keeney and published by us through our clients Record Kicks.

It’s always an honor to be part of Jay’s projects: previously he sampled our copyrights in chart-topper “Roc Boys” (flipping Menahan Street Band’s “Make the Road by Walking”) and “Open Letter” (Charles Bradley’s “I Believe in Your Love”).
