Jay-Z has linked his new album Inside Magna Carta Holy Grail with Samsung.

Rapper Jay-Z has teamed up with Samsung to ensure that his forthcoming album goes platinum automatically.

The music mogul has inked a deal with the brand to cross-promote Inside Magna Carta Holy Grail, which will be available for free on Independence Day to one million fans using Samsung handsets.

Samsung users who own a Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, or Galaxy Note 2 and download the Google Play app by 24 June could get their hands on the LP on 4 July, before it goes on general release on 7 July.

In a three-minute advertisement promoting the album, Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, appears with fellow musicians and producers Pharrell Williams, Rick Rubin and Timbaland.

The group are seen working on the album, experimenting with beats and Beyoncé's husband is also shown discussing the inspiration behind the record.

"The idea is to finish the album and drop it. Give it to the world at one time and let them share it," he tells the camera.

Jay-Z's announcement comes weeks after his wife premiered new single Standing On The Sun through an advertisment for her H&M clothing line in April. Her fifth studio album is expected in November

It will be Jay-Z's first offering since Watch the Throne, a 2011 collaboration with rapper Kanye West, whose new album Yeezus will be out on 18 June.
