In one of the industry’s more unusual and annoyingly exclusive giveaways, Jay-Z gave over a million copies of his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, to Samsung Galaxy users. Not got one? Here’s a stream of a track that features Justin Timberlake.
Check out the lyric sheet for ‘Holy Grail’ and if you just so happen to be in Salisbury area you can even see the album’s artwork next to a copy of the actual Magna Carta. Now that’s a nice touch.
The track itself sees Jay-Z angrily confront the perils of fame, stating he can’t even take his daughter for a walk without the paparazzi getting in the way, but then admitting that it’s an easy life compared to what he had to go through when he was younger. Justin Timberlake’s choruses break up the verses whilst Jay even raps a couple of lines from Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.
