Samsung and Jay-Z Annouce “Magna Carta Holy Grail”

Well it looks like Shawn Carter has made another power move. During game six of the NBA Finals halftime, the world learned the Jay-Z would be releasing his 12th solo project “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” The announcement was made using a three minute commercial featuring Hov and mega producers Pharell Williams, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, and legendary producer Rick Rubin. The album comes as a result of a partnership with phone manufacturer Samsung. The company has purchased 1 million, yes, 1 million copies of the new album.

We last heard from Jay-Z on his collaboration album “Watch the Throne” with Kanye West back in 2011 and most recently on west coast rapper Kendrick Lamar’s remix to “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe.” The announcement was a surprised to us all. During the commercial you are able to see Jay interact with the producers and you even catch some of the beats that may be used on the album.
