Jay-Z is teaming up with Justin Timberlake once again for his upcoming album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’. The news of the collaboration was broken overnight exclusively to users of the Samsung Galaxy app that is releasing his album days before its release to stores on July 4.
One of the songs that features Timberlake, titled, ‘Holy Grail’ makes references to Nirvana’s hit song ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ with the chorus containing the lyrics: “And we all just/ Entertainers/ And we’re stupid/ And contagious”
Jay-Z also mentions late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain by name “I know nobody to blame/ Kurt Cobain/ I did it to myself”
Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, who has the rights to Nirvana’s material, has given Jay-Z permission to use the lyrics and to name her late husband in the song saying: “I’m letting Jay-Z use lyrics… Jay-Z’s huge and we’re friends. I mean we’re not besties or anything…”
Jay-Z’s new album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’, will be available to the first million android phone users who download the app for the album, three days before its official release on June 4.
