"Holy Grail" feat. Justin Timberlake

An album that doubled as an ad for Samsung starts appropriately: with a plug for Jay-Z's upcoming "Legends of Summer" tour with Justin Timberlake. But like the black-and-white in-the-studio TV spot that announced Magna Carter Holy Grail, it's damn effective. The combination of plunking piano chords and high-flying hook recalls the anthemic pop magic of "Empire State of Mind." Yankee Stadium sky boxes are probably selling out as we speak.
