The commercial just aired during Game 5′s half-time show and it looks like Jay-Z has teamed up with Samsung to release a free album entitled “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” due July 4th. Rick Rubin, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz and Pharrell contribute to the album. The catch? Samsung has purchased 1 million copies of Jay-Z’s coming album and plans to give them to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users for free – 72 hours ahead of the release.
Since Samsung pays $5 apiece for the albums, this means that Jay-Z has already made $5 million in sales before the album is even released.
