Rapper Jay-Z to release new album

Jay-Z has announced he will release a surprise new album next month.

The rapper and husband of Beyonce revealed the news during a Samsung advert, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Titled Magna Carta Holy Grail, it will be available for free download to the first million Samsung Galaxy SIII, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note II users on July 4, with the Magna Carta app unlocking the album.

In the advert, Jay-Z said: "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.

"We don't have any rules. Everyone's trying to figure it out. We need to write the new rules.

"The idea is to really finish the album and drop it. Giving it to the world at one time and letting them share it, and it goes out."

Jay-Z has been seen recording in the studio recently with Drake, Timbaland, Nas, Pharrell and Justin Timberlake.

If you're with someone who doesn't want to spend time with you outside the bedroom, move on to greener pastures. It's sometimes difficult to face the truth of a situation like this. When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
