Unfortunately we will never really know what exactly went down on that elevator, but we do know that it will be forever be infamously engraved in history.

There’s a new theory floating around the internet that Jay Z might have actually gotten the title from his latest album 4:44 from that well talked about 2014 Solange enraged attack night.

Jay has been extremely candid and even more personable about his life and music with the content in his new penned LP. And while he’s publicly stated that his album title came to him when he woke up at 4:44 am, a twitter user has revealed something incredibly peculiar.

In a viral tweet that reads: “I’m at The Standard where Solange beat Jay-Z’s ass in the elevator. I AM SHOOK,”the message speculates that maybe Jay wasn’t completely sure about the premise of the album title.

And while the exact address of the New York City hotel isn’t directly 444, it’s the hotel’s rooftop bar, Le Bain that matches the description.

“Of course sometimes sh*t go down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
