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.
