Jay Z is making changes to his name and we need to understand what's going on!

The rapper, who is gearing up for the release of a new album, is putting the hypen back into his name, and making it all caps, a rep told Pitchfork.

The change comes after he took the hypen out in 2013, and has been known as 'Jay Z' ever since.

But now, it's definitely 'JAY-Z'.

Shawn Carter's new album will be released June 30 and will be available only to users of the music streaming service Tidal, which the rapper co-owns.

Tidal announced the news on Twitter early Monday along with a 30-second black-and-white clip from a video of one of the album's songs, featuring Moonlight star Mahershala Ali. The new album is called 4:44.

This year just keeps getting better and better for music Flava fam!
