Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail has been a commercial success and although he failed to complete his quest to force the entire music industry to adopt his new rules, he scored an interesting victory with the title track. With the new video for the song featuring Justin Timberlake now hot on the airwaves, let’s review […]
Propaganda twins powers, activate! The stars of the overhyped media universe aligned last evening when Beyonce hosted the latest stop of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and surprised patrons by bringing out her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
Everything Jay-Z does is blown out of proportion and heralded as larger than life, mainly because of the media machine that supports his work. For example, the Hip-Hop icon teamed with HBO for the release of his new video for “Picasso Baby”, which he termed as “a performance art film.”
Hate him or love him, Jay-Z is certainly a very clever businessman. Instead of fighting the power of social media in an attempt to maintain some extent of secrecy for his music, the rapper has full embraced it and allowed the general public full access to the video shoot for “Picasso Baby”.
Prepare yourself to read the silliest news of all time. During an interview with Revolt TV, the revived Timbaland revealed that he has recorded a new song called “Sorry” with Keri Hilson as a special apology to Jay-Z and Beyonce. I’m not joking; he was serious.
The numbers are in and the usual suspects have once again found themselves in the same position on the US charts as they did in the past. Indeed, scoring yet another monster debut this week was Jay-Z with his Magna Carta Holy Grail while Ciara started incredibly slow with her new self-titled set.
Jay-Z hasn’t even started his Legends of the Summer Stadium Tour with Justin Timberlake but he’s already planning the next step of his career. With his eyes fixed on global success, the Hip-Hop mogul will launch a concert series across the UK and Europe to support his recently released Magna Carta Holy Grail album.
Ciara has packed as much promotion into the release week of her new self-titled album as she can but all her work won’t yield the big numbers for which she was hoping. In fact, the record is on track to sell less than 70K copies and will be easily overshadowed by Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy […]
This is one interview that even I didn’t see coming. Earlier today, Jay-Z appeared on the ever controversial The Breakfast Club for the first time to promote his recently released album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, and caught many of the listeners by surprise. However, his new music wasn’t the only topic on the agenda.
Without or without Nielsen SoundScan’s support, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail will top the Billboard 200 next week. In fact, the album will sell north of 400K copies and help the Hip-Hop icon to further extend his already impressive chart record.
