The '99 Problems' rapper sends his New York fans on a scavenger hunt and rewards the winners with the official tracklist for his forthcoming album.
Jay-Z has officially revealed the tracklist of his highly-anticipated album, "Magna Carta... Holy Grail". On Saturday, June 22, he sent several fans on a scavenger hunt in New York and rewarded the winners with the album's official tracklist.
In the game, Jay-Z's publicist, Jana Fleishman, asked fans to follow her updates on Instagram and Twitter. She tweeted a series of photos and clues while fans were tracking down her location. Those who could found Fleishman were given a binder with nothing but the titles of all tracks in "Magna Carta... Holy Grail".
According to the binder, the album will contain 13 tracks and two bonus tracks. Jay-Z hasn't dropped further details about the collaborators, although fans believe that the album will feature appearances from Rick Rubin, Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Swizz Beatz.
"Magna Carta... Holy Grail" is Jay-Z's fifteenth studio effort. He announced the album last week in a Samsung ad that aired during an NBA game. In the 3-minute video, he's seen in a studio with his collaborators and discussing the album.
The album is set to hit stores next month. One million fans with Samsung phones will be able to download the album for free on July 4, while other fans will have to wait for the album to be officially released three days later.
