The build-up to this release was nothing short of perfection. And now, it's finally here. Magna Carta Holy Grail. The album is available for Samsung Galaxy users, but the rest of the world now has a chance to hear the first single. It's called "Holy Grail," and it features Justin Timberlake.
Initially premiered by Funkmaster Flex tonight on Hot 97, the song features a powerful hook from Timberlake which was co-written by The-Dream and a pulsating beat from Timbaland which switches up several times.
Midway through the song, Jay and Timberlake interpolate lyrics from the classic Nirvana song, "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Courtney Love has said in an interview that she gave permission to use the lyrics earlier this year. In exchange, Jay allowed Courtney to cover "99 Problems" for her performance at the Sundance Film Festival. Listen to the song below.
