Jay-Z just made his highly anticipated announcement during the half-time commercial break of the NBA Finals in the US — he has a new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, dropping July 4 (no Australian release date is known at this point). This was also Jay's moment to reveal his new partnership with Samsung, which reportedly earned him a $20 million paycheck. There's a website — MagnaCartaHolyGrail.com was also launched, with more details about the Samsung promotion. The video is just a teaser, featuring some of his friends like Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Rick Rubin, but it does give us a little taste of what we can expect from the sound.
Will Jay-Z be giving us another amazing track? We'll have to see, but for now, tell us whether or not you're excited about this announcement.
