Apple Music users can now enjoy the official music video to The Story of O.J., a new track from Jay-Z’s recently-released 4:44 album.

Sadly, there’s no sign of the complete album just yet.

Jay-Z has made it incredibly difficult to enjoy 4:44, which is currently exclusive to Tidal, his own music streaming service. Only existing (not new) Tidal subscribers could listen to it when it landed last week, or those who signed up to a new contract with Sprint.

A recent report claimed the restriction would last just seven days, and that Apple Music, Spotify, and other services would get 4:44 this week. There’s no sign of that just yet, but you can enjoy one track off the album while you’re waiting for it.

The official music video to The Story of O.J. is on Apple Music and YouTube now.

Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s record company, announced on Wednesday that 4:44 went platinum just five days after making its debut.

Given that it’s not actually on sale yet, that means it would have had to achieve 1.5 billion streams, according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). That seems unlikely when you consider Tidal has just 3 million users.
