A couple weeks after the rumored $20 million deal between Samsung and Jay-Z, a Samsung commercial aired last night during the NBA Finals that also announced the rapper’s new LP, Magna Carta Holy Grail.
In addition to the dual product promotion, Samsung has purchased one million copies of the album to release 72 hours head of the official release date.
Magna Carta Holy Grail will be available for free download on July 4 to the first million Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S IV, and Galaxy Note II users.
Whether or not the pre-sale copies will factor into Nielsen SoundScan sales is unclear. If so, Magna Carta has already gone platinum.
