It looks like Jay-Z is going to win the award for album marketing this year. Jay-Z has announced his 12th solo album. It is called Magna Carta Holy Grail and I expect it to be monstrous. It will be released on July 4th, but the lucky people with a Samsung Galaxy S III, S4, or Galaxy Note phone will have the opportunity to download the album for free. On June 24th, a Magna Carta app will become available. The first 1 million people to download the app will receive the album for free “72 hours before the on sale release.” So, technically his album will go platinum in the first day lol. I’m not sure how that works because it was 1 million free copies, but we’ll see. The video above shows him working with Rick Rubin, Timbaland, Pharrell, and Swizz Beatz, so I think it’s fair to say the album’s production will be superb. Stay tuned for more and visit this link for more info. Enjoy.
