Jay-Z has changed the spelling of his name once again. Early in his career, as seen above, he spelled his name “Jäy-Z”, with the umlot character above the “A”, like in “Tiësto”. Today, it has been revealed that he no longer supports the hyphen, which we, ourselves, haven’t used in our URL since 1996.

The discovery was made when Billboard editor, Joe Levy (@realjoelevy), was corrected by Roc Nation. He sent the following Tweet early this morning:

“Breaking: Jay Z has dropped the hyphen from his name, according to his label. I am not kidding. (Wish I was.) Copy editors: take note.”

In all fairness, the cover art to Magna Carta Holy Grail spells it “JAY Z

So there you have it. The correct spelling of his name is now, from this point forward is “Jay Z”. Let’s see if that sticks.
