None of this should be surprising but it does make the Samsung Exclusivity one of the shortest promotions in history. Jay-Z’s album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ hit about a million Samsung phones earlier today, through a promotion with Jay-Z himself and is now available anywhere you normally torrent music.
Of course Jay-Z, his record label, fans and album-sellers already expected this to happen, once the music was in someone’s hands it hit torrent sites around the globe and can be downloaded in moments. According to the reports, Samsung paid an extra $20 million dollars to get the rights to the music before anyone else, and when it was announced the company surely got its money’s worth as almost every news outlet talked about the new promotion and who would be getting first-dibs on the music.
Since it’s illegal to download the music we can’t link you directly to the torrent sites, but odds are you have more than your share of favorite sites bookmarked and ready to go.
