Move over, Kanye! Jay-Z dropped a bomb on the world Sunday night when he announced plans to release a new album, just two weeks after Kanye’s Yeezus project goes on sale. Magna Carta Holy Grail hits store shelves on July 4th.
Hov made the surprise announcement during a commercial that aired during Sunday night’s NBA Finals. The rapper also posted a preview video on his Life + Times website.
“It’s this duality of how do you navigate your way through this whole this whole thing… through success, through failures, through all of this, and remain yourself,” Jay says in the video. Keep an eye out for some famous faces including Rick Rubin and Pharrell Williams.
And get this, Jay’s album is already platinum. Samsung, who Jay just signed a $20 million deal with, purchased one million copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail and will distribute them days before the album’s July 4 release to users of the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, and Galaxy Note II.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
