If you caught the NBA Finals Game 5 this evening you might saw this Samsung ad spot featuring Jay Z in the studio with Timberland, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz, and Rick Rubin. During this 3 minute spot, Hov announced his new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail” will be coming out on July 4th, 2013.
Samsung Galaxy phone users will get the opportunity to download a special app starting on June 24th, where they will be able to download album for free on July 4th, 3 days before everybody else can download it. SMART, VERY SMART Samsung.
Not sure if your remember SXSW this year, where there was a special concert with Prince & A Tribe Called Quest that only Samsung Galaxy users could attend. Phone companies are using cool in a brand new way to get consumers to purchase their product. Like the end of this commercial says “The Next Big Thing Is Here.”
Looks like Ye will only have a couple of weeks to really get it in, before Jay comes and makes everybody “tuck they whole summer in.” Looks like Summer just got REAL interesting.
