For this album, he somewhat controversially partnered with Samsung for the release, making MGHC available for download exclusively to Samsung’s mobile customers via a mobile app a full week ahead of dropping it to the street. Samsung also partnered with Jay-Z for the album’s promotional push. Upon its regular release, the album was, also somewhat controversially, certified platinum, as over a million copies had already been digitally downloaded. Whether you agree or not that Jay-Z is the G.O.A.T., he definitely has a knack for garnering attention, just ask anyone in the art world who’s heads were left to scratch after a live performance at Chelsea’s Pace Gallery. Frank Ocean, Justin Timberlake, Nas, and wife Beyonce all make appearances on tracks like “Oceans”, “Holy Grail”, and, “Part II (On The Run)”. Def Jam label mate Rick Ross stepped into the studio to record “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” with Jay, our pick off the album.
