Jay Z "Holy Grail" (ft. Justin Timberlake) / "Part II (On the Run)" (ft. Beyoncé)
Published Jul 04, 2013Today (July 4) marks the day that Jay-Z releases his new Magna Carta Holy Grail LP via Samsung Galaxy phones. If you don't have one of those, however, two songs from the release have been uploaded to SoundCloud.
The Justin Timberlake-assisted single "Holy Grail" opens the album with some cinematic piano before Jay starts delivering verses atop a busy drumbeat. It's also the song that features lyrics from Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," and it sounds just as awkward as you would have expected.
Elsewhere, Hova hangs out with his wife Beyoncé on "Part II (On the Run)," a synth-heavy love song duet with a suave beat.
Check out both tracks below.
