'Magna Carta Holy Grail': Jay-Z partners with Samsung for new album
Jay-Z has a new album on the way. Called "Magna Carta Holy Grail," the record is due in stores on July 7. It's Jay-Z's first album since 2011's "Watch The Throne."
The announcement was made through a three-minute Samsung ad. The commercial offers up a taste of some of the various music styles Jay-Z is experimenting with, and even features appearances by Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Rick Rubin and Timbaland.
The album will premiere first for Samsung Galaxy owners. The first million people who download the "Magna Carta Holy Grail" app on June 24 will get the record free on July 4. This is part of the rumored $20 million contract Jay-Z signed with Samsung in June.
More information will be revealed about "Magna Carta Holy Grail" on the album's website at a later date.
