Be among the first to hear Jay-Z's latest, for free, from Samsung

Friday we told you that Samsung and Jay-Z had something in store, and it would be announced during the NBA finals game five on television. Everything has been announced, and it turns out that it's a pretty big deal. Jay-Z will be releasing his latest, titled Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4, and one million lucky Samsung owners will get a free copy.

It's going to work like so. On June 24, Samsung is going to publish an app to Google Play, and folks using a Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, or a Galaxy S4 will be able to download and install it. We imagine the app will keep you up to date on the happenings surrounding the upcoming release, but the magic happens on July 4, when the new tunes are released.

As soon as July 4 rolls around, the first one million users who have installed the app will get a free copy of the album. We've no details on the format, but what we understand is that it's yours to download and keep. Keep your eyes on the #MagnaCarta site to count things down.

Not too shabby!
