Jay-Z Dropping New Album on July 4

Hova stans get ready for some Independence Day fun! Jay-Z will release a new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, on July 4. He announced the news via a Samsung commercial which played during Sunday’s (June 16) NBA Finals Game 5 (Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs).

In the three-minute ad, Jay-Z is seen brainstorming in the studio with long time collaborators, Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz.

“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,” he tells Rubin of his twelfth studio album. Check out the video:
