Samsung’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” by Jay-Z app now available for download on select Galaxy phones

For those of you who were oh, so excited to download Jay-Z’s latest album soon, and happen to own certain Samsung Galaxy phones (Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2, for now), some good news has flown through the pipeline. The promotional app Samsung will use to distribute Magna Carta Holy Grail to its users is now live.

If you don’t remember, Samsung and Jay-Z struck a deal for the South Korean company to obtain one million downloads of the new album by rap’s biggest mogul. Not only will those folks be getting a free copy, they’ll be able to download it for free on July 4th, a full three days ahead of everyone else.

The app is little more than a countdown timer right now, though you can watch a few promotional videos and share info about the app to your social networks to unlock some lyrics. Even if you don’t want all of that you’ll probably want to download the app well ahead of time, just to make sure you can wake up bright and early on Independence Day to get a taste of Jay-Z’s latest lyrical project.

Give it a go in the Google Play Store if you have a qualifying device. The track listing for the album has also been revealed, though we’re still not sure what sort of features we should be expecting. Get a quick look at that below.

1. Picasso Baby
2. Heaven
3. Versus
4. Tom Ford
5. Beach Is Better
6. fu*kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt
7. Oceans
8. F.U.T.W.
9. Part II (On The Run)
10. BBC
11. La Familia
12. Jay-Z Blue
13. Nickles & Dimes

      Too bad you have deal with
      Marvel, Disney, OSHA (for on and off the job safety), EPA (for
      environmental issues that stem from the power source) and Ozzy Osborne
      if his song is used. Btw, HTC could face similar issues due to the fact
      that Jet-Li was the star in ‘The One’. Oh how we miss Johnny Cochran and
      F. Lee Bailey.

        Too bad all that money can’t educate you on how to spell correctly or use proper grammar.

  • simpleas

    Enjoy Iron man while I enjoy the Jay z ;)

    • DavidVarghese

      Free fully functioning Iron Man suit with a purchase of a HTC One, vs an album from Jay Z…

      ;)

      EDIT: Sarcasm, in case you didn’t catch it.

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    It downloaded the app but there is no music. It says coming 06/25/2013, I thought it was 06/24/2013

    • Lex_407

      They want to the million downloads in before the release of the album. You don’t want a million users trying to download the album at once, so they gradually release to everyone the day before so servers won’t boggle. I believe so.

  • deh2002

    I’m more surprised he didn’t sign a deal with a north Korean company.

    • simpleas

      lol

  • Patrick Bateman

    I have a htc one and have the album already…

    Thanks Pirate bay!!!!

    • MITM

    • simpleas

      yea but you still got the one..

  • JulianZHuang

    getting 99 albums and this aint one.

  • Lex_407

    How come everyone keeps on saying Galaxy users get to listen to it first on July 4th. The retail album drops July 4th, Galaxy users (S3, S4, Note II) get to listen/download the album on the 25th. It states it in the app. http://postimg.org/image/yys3zvvcd/

    • MangoFace

      On my app it says 9 days, 5 hours…

  • Revas

    Looking forward to this.

  • Erik Slavik

    Downloaded and installed, and suddenly my device was uploading MBs of data?? Anyone else experience this?

    • Erik Slavik

      Google Plus updated and enabled an auto backup feature. Got to the bottom of it. No worries people.

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    Meh….

  • J.p. Ladue

    Wow, can’t limit exclusivity to just gaming consoles, now we have to deal with it on our phones. What my Galaxy SII isn’t good enough for Jay Z’s new album? Eat a d 1 c k.

  • Haggie

    Calling it “Magna Carta” or “The Holy Grail” wouldn’t be douchey enough, so Jay-Z had to pull the douchebag double down and call it both…

    I’ve seen commercials of this on You Tube. I like the humanity of the commercial; you saw Jay-Z at his human side.

  • ac

    Anybody actually get anything on the app to work? Just keeps stalling on my Note 2, without anything loading up.

  • Kiki723

    I listed my true age (44) and it said I didn’t qualify for this promotion. Jay Z – are you age discriminating since you’re a year or so younger than me???
