Samsung is teaming up with rapper Jay-Z to bring 1 million copies of his upcoming album "Magna Carta Holy Grail" a few days before it goes on sale, and the Android app that'll do it for you is now available for download.
You'll need to have the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 2 to participate. And then you'll need to log in using either Facebook or Twitter. And then you'll have to
spam share content from the app with your friends. At 12:00:01 a.m. July 4, 1 million lucky fans will get the record that might or might not leak early anyway, a full three days before the official July 7 release.
The app itself is pretty well done, with inside looks and promos of the album's recording, and teasers for upcoming content. Share via Twitter or Facebook and you can unlock even more content.
And if you have any ideas about its popularity, more than 1,400 people have reviewed the app as of this writing, in its first day of availability. That should go a long ways to assuage the pain of those first 1 million copies of Magna Carta not counting toward the Billboard charts.
