Since making a name for himself in rap, Jay-Z has gone on to become one of the most successful entertainers in history, making millions as a producer, investor, and, most recently, a sports agent. That doesn't mean he's given up on his musical aspirations, however.
Jay-Z this week announced his latest album, titled Magna Carta Holy Grail. The rap star revealed the release date of the album in a post to his Twitter account:
VII IV XIII Roc A Fella Records/Roc Nation #magnacarta
— Mr. Carter (@S_C_) June 17, 2013
That isn't quite the whole story, though.
Jay-Z has partnered with Samsung to offer the album for free to owners of Samsung's Galaxy smartphones. A mobile app will be released in the Google Play store on June 24th. The first million Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note II users to download the app will receive Magna Carta Holy Grail for free on July 4th. The album's worldwide release date is July 7th.
