Jay, 43, also explains his vision for the project, “This album is about….it’s this duality of how do you navigate your way through this whole thing… through success, through failures, through all of this, and remain yourself.”

Jay added,”We put the album out on July 4th. We don’t have any rules, everyone is tryna figure it out. That’s why the internet is like the wild west, the wild wild west. We need to write the new rules.”

Music producers Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz are also featured in the commercial. Meanwhile, “Magna Carta Holy Grail” comes to Samsung Galaxy fans first, allowing  music lovers to download the app on June 24th and get the album free July 4th,  three days before the rest of the world.
