[News] Jay-Z Announces New Album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail', Due Out July 4th

Jay-Z's long-awaited follow-up to 2009's The Blueprint 3 has been announced: Magna Carta Holy Grail will be released on July 4th.

During game five of the 2013 NBA Finals, a three-minute trailer debuted. The trailer showed Hov in the studio with Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Rick Rubin (who very recently served as executive producer on Kanye's Yeezus), where they discuss the beats and rhythms behind this new record. It also sampled some new music, and what you hear throughout the trailer sounds awesome. Check it out below.

The album is about, like this duality of how do you navigate through this whole thing, through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself."—Jay-Z on Magna Carta Holy Grail

Samsung has already purchased one million copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail, and will release an app on June 24th that gives an insight into the record. Then, the album will be available to download for free through that app on July 4th at 12:01am EST to the first one million Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4 and Note II users.


[Listen] Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z - "Suit & Tie" (Prod. by Timbaland)

After the huge commotion Justin Timberlake stirred up just a few days ago, announcing his return with one hell of a teaser video, the countdown on his website has ended with the release of "Suit & Tie", his first song in over 6 years. Built on top of slick, extravagant production courtesy of Timbaland, the song sees Justin dishing out his trademark delicate-yet-sexy vocals to much delight. What's even better, though, is a slowed down minute providing ample opportunity for Jay-Z to share in the limelight. From start to finish, "Suit & Tie" is a glimmering, luxurious return for Justin. Stream the track below, or, if you're inclinded to purchase it, head over to iTunes. Let us know your thoughts on the song in the comments below.

"Suit & Tie" serves as our first taste of Timberlake's forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which, according to an open letter to his fans, will be out sometime this year.

Good move. Peep this track in the player below and if you dig, head over to the Timbaland Thursdays website to pick it up as well as any of the previous releases.

[Listen] Timbaland x Missy Elliot - "Swat Dat Fly" (Unreleased)

A fan of Timbo asked him via Twitter why he didn’t release a track with longtime collaborator Missy Elliot on his Shock Value II project. Tim explained that it was “a rush project… it wasn’t time yet and I didn’t really get the mash up. It had too much pop… I wanted to even it out. Maybe that’s why I didn’t put Missy on it, cause it was mostly a pop album.”

Then in response he also dropped a preview of an unreleased tune featuring Missy titled “Swat Dat Fly.” Damn. This really makes me miss old Tim & Magoo albums.
