It seems that the “new thing” for 2013 is celebrity endorsements, as we’ve seen Alicia Keys join BlackBerry and Jessica Alba join Windows Phone, among others. For all of those curious as to what Samsung and Jay-Z had in store for us after some teasers last week, well, let the rumors reach a halt as of today.
It turns out that Jay-Z’s new album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail” is slated for a launch on July 4th, and as a benefit to current owners of the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II, Samsung will be offering an app on the Google Play store on June 24th that will give Jay-Z’s new album for free. This give away is limited to only one million lucky Galaxy owners, and we assume this is a first-come first-serve thing, so just remember that there are currently 10 million Galaxy S 4 owners in the market, without counting all the other tens of millions of people that own all the previous Galaxy models.
At this time it’s hard to tell how many tracks will be included, or if there’s a way to reserve a spot and be among the lucky ones to get it. Just keep in mind that the app will be available almost ten days before the album is officially out to the rest of the world, so aside from getting free music, you’ll also be the first to have it as well.
