Jay-Z, Samsung do album release promo
MANILA, Philippines - Jay-Z is the latest celebrity to team up with Samsung, with the two setting up a promotion to give a million copies of Jay Z's upcoming album early to Samsung users.
On the website for Jay-Z's album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," there's an announcement saying that an app will be made available on the Google Play store on June 24.
The first million people using Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 2 who download the app will be given the complete album 72 hours before release.
Here's a behind the scenes look at 'Magna Carta Holy Grail':
One caveat to note, however, is that the promotion is available only for territories where the promo isn't prohibited. There's no listing for territories where the promotion is prohibited, sadly, so some places will likely have to take their chances when the app comes out.
The Wall Street Journal adds that Samsung reportedly paid US$5 million for the copies they'll be giving out in advance.
If Jay-Z is your thing, and you feel like taking a chance to score a free album, this seems like a good deal for Samsung users. - Rappler.com
