Yesterday, Sean “Diddy” Combs announced the launch of his network Revolt TV. Combs revealed that he reached an agreement with Time Warner Cable for distribution of his network, Revolt TV. Combs stated that Revolt TV will be music-themed. In an interview with Adweek Combs explained, “there was no longer a platform for musical artists to trust with their art and with their creativity, and also no place that was covering music [as ESPN covered sports and CNN covered news]. Combs went on to say, Revolt “will be authentic and speak their language,” giving the artist the opportunity to, “celebrate who they really are…Cool is priceless.”

Jay-Z Links Up With Samsung For The Release Of “Magna Carta Holy Grail”
One thing that no one can deny about Jay-Z is that he is an extremely smart businessman. He said it best himself, “I’m a hustler baby I sell water to a well.” Jay-Z will be releasing his 12th studio album Magna Carta Holy Grail, on July 4th. Jay-Z strategically announced the release of his upcoming album by teaming up with some of his heavy hitter producer friends, and Samsung in a three minute commercial that aired during game 5 of the NBA Finals (Miami Heat vs San Antonio Spurs).
The three-minute commercial shows Jay-Z as he collectively brainstorms with Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, Pharrell, and Rick Rubin on ideas for his upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail. How does Samsung tie into the equation? Well, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail will be first accessible to Samsung Galaxy holders (Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II). The first million Samsung holders that download the “Magna Carta” app, will receive a free copy of Jay-Z’s upcoming album, and they will receive it on July 4th, which is three days before the assigned release date.
This is brilliant in a time in which albums are no longer selling like they use to. Jay-Z has possibly found a way to go platinum before the release of his album. According to the Wall Street Journal Samsung has purchased 1 million copies of Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail at $5 dollars a piece.
Congratulations to Jay-Z, this is marketing at its finest!
