Remember that deal with Samsung and Jay-Z? Yeah, well that hasn’t been going very smoothly. Owners of various Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note II were set to receive the new Jay-Z album at the stroke of midnight if they downloaded and installed the Magna Carta Holy Grail app, and were one of the first 1 Million people to download it to their devices. Anxious Jay-Z fans fired up the app early this morning to find that the app did not work. Fail. Kinda wack Samsung, don’t ya think?
Undeterred, Jay-Z fans took to alternate means to get their hands on the Magna Carta Holy Grail album, from searching out YouTube links to straight up pirating the album. Looks like Samsung’s $5 Million deal with the Jigga Man is off to a rough start.
We have been trying the MCHG app, and it still is not working. Not only do the download links not function, but the extra content that the app is supposed to provide doesn’t load. A few tweets have gone out saying that the app is now functioning, so it could be coming back to life soon. Have you been able to download the new Jay-Z album, or are you still having issues?
