Jay-Z Announces New Album via Samsung Commercial

by at . Comments

Jay-Z will not be welcoming a new baby into the world any time soon. Seriously, Beyonce is not pregnant.

But the superstar will be releasing a new album this summer, making the announcement via a three-minute Samsung commercial that aired at halftime of the NBA Finals last night.

“It’s about this duality of, how do you navigate your way through this whole thing, through success, through failure, through all of this, and remain your self?” the rapper says of the CD in the video.

The album will be titled the "Magna Carta Holy Grail" and Samsung Galaxy users will have exclusive first rights to it on July 4.

Yes, three days before it goes on sale to the public, the first one million Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II owners can download a customized mobile app and listen to it for free.

Says Jay-Z on the album's official website: "We need to write the new rules."

It's safe to say he has just done so.
