For the last three weeks, Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail has been touted as the "it" album of 2013, and today it arrives for free to one million Samsung Galaxy smartphone customers.
The new album has already re-written the rules of the music industry, forcing the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to change the definition for how gold and platinum record sales are achieved.
In the new album, the famed rapper follows a traditional path on the track Picasso, Baby by boasting about his wealth, but he also talks about what that money is really worth. Jay-Z also contemplates his new role as a dad to Blue Ivy after being raised himself without a dad in his life on the track Jay-Z Blue. Hova then raps on Nickels and Dimes about whether or not his charitable giving is an act of guilt or genuine concern. The album also features a throwback posse cut via BBC which features the talents of industry heavyweights Nas, Beyonce, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell, and Timberland
Also featured on Magna Carta Holy Grail are the likes of Justin Timberlake, Rick Ross, and Frank Ocean.
Jay-Z's masterful lyrics and his willingness to sing about family, religion, fame, and more makes Magna Carta Holy Grail an album worth purchasing.
If you haven't already received your free copy via the Samsung Galaxy S3 or Samsung Galaxy S4, you can download the Jay-Z Magna Carta Holy Grail app to get your free copy.
Today marks a historic occasion as Jay-Z becomes the first artist of all time to sell one million albums before his record even goes on sale. Sure, his method for reaching one million sales is a bit unorthodox, but many music experts believe it could be the future of the industry.
