Jay Z‘s upcoming album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail‘ (see tracklisting w/ features) drops July 4th. This week he dropped more lyrics to two songs off the album, “Part II (On The Run)” featuring Beyonce, and “Oceans” featuring Frank Ocean. We’ve also been given several YouTube snippets to songs, produced by the likes of Pharrell, Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, Rick Rubin, Justice L.E.A.G.U.E., J.Cole, and Boi-1da. These previews, below, sound sweet and we cannot wait to get you the full length tracks when they are released.
Finally, Samsung and Jay-Z have been making plans to host a party in Time Square as well as an appearance on The David Letterman show for July 8th. The only issue with the concert, of course, is crowd control and security, but Jay-Z is seemingly unstopplable at this point and is working diligently to make it happen.
This is all great news and as the HYPE for the album continues to build you can expect Jay-Z to release more and more album material. For now check out what he has released which are new lyrics and song previews, all of which are after the jump. MORE!
