Jay-Z Teases New Album: Magna Carta Holy Grail
Hip-hop megastar reveals title and snippets of new LP in Samsung advert...
Jay-Z has revealed details about his new album in an advert for Samsung smartphones.
The promo film was aired on US TV in the commercial break during the NBA Finals game between Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs yesterday.
Addressing Rubin during the clip, Jay-Z says: "The album is about... this duality of how you navigate through this whole thing, through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself."
The album is set for release on 7 July, but owners of Samsung's Galaxy S3 and S4 smartphones and the Galaxy Note 2 tablet will get the opportunity to get it for free beforehand.
One million Samsung owners will be allowed to "unlock" the album using an app which will be launched on 24 June.
Jay-Z was photographed in the studio with Drake last month.
