People who own the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3 or Note 2 handsets will be able to get rapper Jay-Z’s new solo studio album three days before it goes on sale in July – for free.
The new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, will be available to download from 12.01am on 4 July – 72 hours before it is officially released – through a dedicated app.
But time is of the essence – only the first million people to download the album through the app will qualify for the offer.
The rapper announced the plans in a Samsung advert played out on U.S television during the NBA Finals on Sunday.
It is unclear whether the offer will be available to U.S Samsung owners only, or whether it will be a global campaign.
More than 50 million Galaxy S4 and S3 handsets have been sold in the UK alone.
MailOnline has asked Samsung for comment.
According to reports in the Wall Street Journal, Samsung is said to have spent $5m on the deal and it is rumoured to be part of a $20m partnership between Jay-Z and the Korean-based mobile manufacturer.
Magna Carta Holy Grail will be Jay-Z’s first solo release in four years and his 12th studio album.
His most recent album was the critically acclaimed collaboration with Kanye West called Watch the Throne.
The three-minute Samsung advert began with the star chatting on his phone before the camera moved on to capture him in the studio.
‘It’s about this duality of, how do you navigate your way through this whole thing, through success, through failure, through all of this, and remain yourself?’ the rapper comments about the new album.
The hip hop star is then seen working on new music with Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Swizz Beats and Timbaland.
‘We don’t have any rules, everybody is trying to figure it out,’ he says at one point. ‘That’s why the internet is like the Wild West. We need to write the new rules.’
Jay-Z’s last solo effort The Blueprint 3 claimed number one spot in the U.S. back in 2009, selling more than two million copies.
Jay-Z is not the first celebrity technology deal.
Alicia Keys is the current ambassador for BlackBerry handsets, while Holly Willoughby and James Corden are the celebrity faces of Windows Phone.
The latest HTC phones also come with Dr Dre’s Beats Audio speakers built-in.
