JAY-Z‘s year-end playlist for 2023 is showing love to every one from vets to newcomers including the likes of Doechii, Ken Carson, Veeze and more.

Hov’s “Couple Songs of ’23” arrived on TIDAL on Thursday (December 21), kicking things off with a song that features his wife’s name, but not her vocals: André 3000‘s “Ninety Three ‘Til Infinity And Beyoncé

Of the aforementioned names, Jay included Ken Carson’s “Jennifer’s Body,” Veeze and Babyface Ray’s “Bosses Linking With Bosses” and Doechii’s breakout hit, “What It Is.”

Other, more seasoned artists like Drake, Offset, Latto and Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and more also made the list, which JAY reportedly compiled during a live DJ set on Tidal hours before the playlist went live.

Most notable, however, is his inclusion of Diddy‘s “Boohoo” with Jeremih, despite the compounding allegations against the music mogul.

JAY-Z is no stranger to the art of curating playlists. The rap deity has put together over 20 playlists on TIDAL, ranging from summer anthems and songs for “survival” to his favorite Nas, Prince and Michael Jackson records.

He acquired the Norwegian streaming platform in a $56.2 million deal in January 2015 before selling his majority ownership stake to Jack Dorsey’s Block, Inc. (formerly Square, Inc.) for a reported $302 million last March

In a rare Twitter Spaces appearance in 2021, JAY-Z proclaimed himself a “top-tier” playlist creator while discussing the evolution of TIDAL.

“I’ve found so many songs, my playlist game is A++,” he said. “I challenge anyone out there. I see a lot of people on this call, I’m not gonna call out individual names. I’m definitely, you know, in the top-tier of playlist creators

As for his own musical output, JAY-Z hasn’t released an album since 2018’s Everything Is Love, a full-length collaboration with Beyoncé.

And earlier this month, Jay celebrated The Black Album‘s 20th anniversary with some throwback merch.

Initially marketed as Hov’s final album, the 14-cut LP is considered by many to be his greatest body of work. In celebrating the two decades since it was released in late 2003, Roc-A-Fella Records and Mitchell & Ness have teamed up to re-release the New York Knicks-styled Shawn Carter jerseys popularized by the rapper during that era.

“Originally released in 2003 to celebrate JAY-Z’s career and forthcoming semi-retirement, the Roc-A-Fella Records x Mitchell & Ness Authentic Jersey is now available in its original and re-imagined variation,” the clothing company wrote on social media
