This past Sunday, Jay-Z who’s real name is Sean Carter, announced the partnership in an ad that aired during half time of the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The three minute shows Jay working on the album title, Magna Carta Holy Grail which feature production appearances from Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Swizz Beats & Timbaland.

The album is about this duality, how do you navigate your way through this whole thing, through success, through failure and remain yourself,” Jay-Z says.

Samsung will make the album available for free via ”Magna Carta” app on July 4 at 12:01 a.m. EDT, 72 hours before the record is available to the general public. The app is to be launched June 24.
