JAY Z’s new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail” won’t be released until July 7th. But if you’re a Samsung Galaxy owner, you just hit the jackpot, because the album will be coming to Samsung Galaxy fans first. Samsung has teamed up with JAY-Z to release his album to the first million Samsung Galaxy owners who download the app on June 24th. These owners will in turn get the album free on July 4th, three days before the rest of the world.
Specifically, you’ll have to be a user of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 or Galaxy Note II to participate and download the app. In addition, Galaxy users will be able to share the Magna Carta app to other Galaxy owners via S Beam, Twitter or Facebook.
Either way, this is a creative way to reward Galaxy users for being Galaxy users. It’s also a unique way for an artist to release an album.
You can find out more information about the release on the Magna Carta Holy Grail web site. And check out the video above for a preview of the album, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the Monster Diamond Tears that are scattered throughout the video.
Update 6/24/2013: The app is now available to download on Google Play
