Jay-Z’s New CD Is Coming to an App Near You

In a dramatic three-minute commercial, Jay-Z announced on Sunday that his new CD, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will be available to download early for owners of Samsung’s Galaxy mobile phones.

Here’s how it works: On June 24, the first million people to download a new app from the mobile phone company will then be able to stream the album in full starting at midnight on July 4, a full three days before the CD is released to the general public.

Which all sounds very complicated and unnecessary, sure; but if the CD is any good as Yeezus apparently is, maybe it’ll all be worth it.
