If there’s one thing Jay-Z knows, it’s music. Shawn Carter has always been known for what he does in the music industry, and who he chooses to work with as well. The new track, called “Holy Grail” will be sung by him, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake.
Beyonce will be featured on part 2 of “Holy Grail”, which is a follow up to their hit “Bonnie & Clyde”
Samsung users who have downloaded the #magnacarta app will have the album available to tem for streaming as of July 4th.
For those without a Samsung phone or tablet, you’ll have to wait until Tuesday July 9th to buy the album or download it from iTunes. If that’s not enough for you fans out there, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake will in fact be going on tour together later this summer.
I guess it’s safe to assume that Jay-Z and Justin are now even with each other, since Jay-Z lent his voice to Justin when they did the hit “Suit & Tie” together.
This is the 12th studio album for Jay-Z.
It appears that the new album has already gone platinum and it hasn’t been released yet! A picture was posted via Instagram saying #ALREADYPLATINUM and the RIAA has in fact stated that this is indeed true. The sales figures have been reflected through the 1 million copies that Jay-Z gave away because of his on-going deal with Samsung.
The RIAA announced this past Monday that it would in fact start counting the digital sales towards a gold or platinum status. This is instead of waiting the standard 30 days after a record has been officially released. Despite some mixed reviews, most of them have been quite positive.
Billboard has stated that it’s considered “unfair” to compare Jay-Z to Kayne West.
Allow me to state this obvious, that this couldn’t be any more true. One is NOT the same as the other. Jay-Z’s new track entitled “Clowns”, has also been making waves as is takes a shot or two at sports agent Scott Boras and at Miley Cyrus.
