In a massive surprise to the world it seems the summer just got a little more interesting with Jay-Z now throwing his hat in the pot of releases to come. In collaboration with Samsung, Jay-Z will release Magna Carta Holy Grail as a mobile app on June 24th to 1 million Samsung Galaxy users before a July 4th full release to the world. The Mobile app will be the first of it kind as not only will it house the album in it entirety but it will also provide an insiders glance at the creation of the album. This collaboration was announced via a super producer loaded spot featuring Rick Rubin, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams, and long time collaborator Timbaland. The rules of music distribution are shifting and this massive stance by Jay-Z may signify a new direction for albums to come, we hope.
