Jay Z - Jay-jay Z Shocks Fans With New Album Announcement

Rap icon Jay Z stunned fans on Sunday (16Jun13) by announcing plans to release his 12th studio album next month (Jul13).

The 99 Problems hitmaker revealed that Magna Carta Holy Grail will be available to buy from 4 July (13) in a video sponsored by Samsung Galaxy which aired during the Nba finals in the U.S.

In the footage, the hip-hop star is filmed in the studio working on his latest material, with contributors Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Rick Rubin.

Speaking of his new project, he says, "It's this duality of how do you navigate your way through this whole thing... through success, through failures, through all of this, and remain yourself."

The album is his first studio offering since 2009's The Blueprint 3, while he released collaborative record Watch the Throne with Kanye West in 2011.
