HTC might have signed up Iron Man, but Samsung isn’t looking too worried with Jigga Man on its side.

Rap mogul Shawn Carter, alias Jay-Z, has reportedly signed a $5 million deal with the Korean giant to make his new album available to users of Samsung’s flagship devices ahead of its commercial launch.

Titled Magna Carta Holy Grail, the album will launch worldwide on July 7, but Samsung users will be able to get it early using the app called Jay Z Magna Carta, which was just released on the Play Store.

According to the terms and conditions of the promotion, the app can be downloaded on the following devices:
