We all know that when Samsung releases something, they do it BIG. Jay Z is no different! These two big names have come together in the ultimate partnership for an innovative touch at album releases. 1 million users will get the famed rapper’s album Magna Carta Holy Grail for free through an app at the Google Play store before the official release date.
It’s been four years since Jay Z’s last album, and this time around he is writing new rules for releasing the new album Magna Carta Holy Grail next month. Users with Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S 4 can download the app on June 24th to try and be one of the one million to get the album before its official release.
#MagnaCarta and Samsung Commercial #newRules
The Samsung and Jay Z commercial was aired during Game 5 of the 2013 NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. The 3 minute commercial shows Jay Z in the studio with producers well known Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, and Rick Rubin. They discuss certain lines, analyze and sound out beats, and talk about how the album should be released and shared. Samsung makes a couple of subtle appearances in form of a Galaxy Tab Tablet and the Galaxy S 4.
