Some lucky Samsung customers will receive Jay-Z’s upcoming album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ for free 72 hours before it is officially released. The album will be available on July 4th from 12.01 am through a dedicated app, but only the first million customers will be able to download the album through the app and only for customers who own a Samsung Galaxy S4, S3 or Galaxy Note 2 handset. It is unclear at present time if this will only be available to U.S. customers or if it is intended for worldwide release.
Jay-Z announced this through what could be thought as the first commercial amongst more to come as fans can expect more Jay-Z collaborations. It is reported to be part of a 20 million dollar deal between the rap mogul and the Korean-based mobile company. The commercial reveals that the album will feature production from the likes of Timberland, Rick Rubin, Swizz Beats and Pharrell Williams.
