Jay-Z covers the latest issue of Billboard Magazine.
By now I'm sure you're aware of Jay-Z's upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail. With a release date only about two weeks away, Billboard Magazine decided to put Hov on the cover of their latest issue.
Inside the issue, Billboard will be breaking down the deal that Jay-Z and Samsung recently worked out, and what it means for the music industry. The story will hit Billboard.com tomorrow at 9AM. In other recent news regarding the album, it was just announced that Soundscan will NOT be counting album sales for the first million fans through their app. Which originally brought up the topic of Hov going platinum before the album official drops, but that will not be the case.
Album drops July 4th. Check out the cover in the gallery above. [Via]
