jay z magna carta 500x274

The cat is finally out of the bag. Jay-Z has announced his 12th album called Magna Carta Holy Grail which will be released exclusively through Samsung on U.S. Independence Day, July 4th.

The LP will be available for download for the first 1 million fans on Samsung devices through the Magna Carta Holy Grail app which will be available on the Android store on June 24th. The arrangement is interesting from the business and retail point of view. By making 1 million copies available for download at a nominal charge of the app (it’s supposedly $5), common sense says it means platinum sold first week on Soundscan but we’re sure there are more dynamics to that.

After the break is some in the studio footage of Jay-Z working with 4 veteran producers — Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Pharrell and Rick Rubin.
