Jay-Z & Samsung

TheeBlog-JayZ_Samsung There is no doubt that Jay-Z is a business, man. His global reach has expanded way beyond music, and his (or his team’s) entrepreneurial skills, are nothing short of admirable. His image and empire has proven to be a gold mine for sponsors and corporations willing to partner up to milk his media value. And now, Jay-Z has partnered with Samsung to release an exclusive treat for Samsung Galaxy users, ahead of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail official release date (July 4th). Samsung purchased 1 million copies of the album, and will offer Galaxy users the opportunity to download it 3 days before it hits stores. Check out the event teaser video, aired during game 5 of the finals between the Heat and Spurs, after the jump.

The Wall Street Journal stated “Samsung paid $5 apiece for the albums, according to a person familiar with the matter… For Jay-Z, the deal is a precious advertising opportunity and gives him $5 million in sales before the album is even released.” PLUS, the fact that, if these sales are validated, Jay-Z’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail has already reached platinum status before its release. Yeah, I know…
