The countdown to Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail continues, so the mogul teases with more music.
After revealing the lyrics to the Justin Timberlake-assisted “Holy Grail” earlier in the week, lyrics for “Oceans” featuring Frank Ocean has been unveiled.
In a recent video clip, Jay explains the meaning behind the piano-driven song. “It sounds like a celebration of where we are now on some big yacht, throwing champagne in the water,” he tells Rick Rubin. “But the undertow of the thing is that this is the same water that brought us here originally as slaves, so it has this old duality and how we are rewriting history.”
Samsung will release 1 million free copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4 to Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, and Note II owners, while the rest of the world receives it on July 9.
