Few albums go platinum nowadays.  But, Jay-Z will have a new platinum album before his new release officially goes on sale.

Samsung will give away the new Jay-Z album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, before it goes on sale to their customers.  The company has already purchased 1 million copies of the new album, making it a platinum record.

The company bought the albums for $5 a piece, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Jay-Z broke the news about the new album in a lengthy Samsung commercial that aired during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.
