Magna Carta Holy Grail,” Jay-Z‘s new album, will be free to the first 1 million users of Samsung devices. This is after Samsung and the famous rapper released an ad during the 5th game between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs this Sunday, June 16, 2013, as shown in the video below.

“We don’t have any rules; everybody is trying to figure it out. That’s why the Internet is like the Wild West, the Wild Wild West. We need to write the new rules.” Jay-Z said on the 3-minute ad video, which was shown near the end of the second quarter of the NBA Finals Game 5.

In the ad, Jay-Z can be seen inside a studio, apparently conceptualizing his 12th solo album with producers Rick Rubin, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, and Pharrell Williams. Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets are also featured in the ad, along with the tagline, “The Next Big Thing is here.”

As noted in the message at, one million owners of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note II will get a free “Magna Carta Holy Grail” album, and can be downloaded via a special mobile app on Monday, June 24, 2013. The album will be unlocked on Thursday, July 4, 12:01 a.m. E.T, 72 hours (3 days) before it will be officially released.

According to a report at Wall Street Journal, a person familiar with the matter told them that Samsung paid $5 to Jay-Z for each album copy. This means that the rap icon will earn a cool $5 million even before his new album will be released. In addition, the “Magna Carta Holy Grail” album will instantly be ranked Platinum.
