The artist formerly known as Jay-Z has been working on his diva status – by officially changing his name to JAY Z.
You might notice the US rapper has dropped the hyphen from his title and is teasing us with some CAPS LOCK action.
His official website has made the change along with iTunes and YouTube embracing the new spelling.
Some fans claim the rapper changed his moniker years ago, which is supported by the album art of Watch The Throne – his collaborative hit with Kanye West, which was in caps without dash.
JAY’s most recent work, Magna Carta Holy Grail, doesn’t settle the debate as the promotional poster has a line strike through the text.
Billboard editor Joe Levy tweeted: “JAY Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. (Wish I was.) Copy editors: take note.”
Annoyingly, his label Roc Nation haven’t released an official comment – which we hope will be writing in CAPS without punctuation – to explain the decision.
Meanwhile, the rapper has added extra dates to the UK tour of Magna Carta after tickets sold-out for the original six-dates within seconds.
The 43-year-old rapper will play EIGHT dates in the UK and Ireland in October, including Manchester and Birmingham before three successive night’s in London.
It will be a special tour for the US heavyweight after bagging his first number one album in the UK charts this week with Magna Carta Holy Grail.
