Jay-Z Breaks Down Two New Tracks Off ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’: Watch

a6c4d706d98e23a032c596888bbac3d7 Jay Z Breaks Down Two New Tracks Off ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’: Watch

With his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail dropping next week, Jay-Z has been keeping a steady hand on the promo train. The rapper has unveiled numerous lyrics off the album, but now he’s opening up about what those words are all about — and in a pair of new videos, Jay-Z explains two tracks: “Jay-Z Blue” and “Heaven.”

Jay-Z is now a father to little Blue Ivy, but he’s struggled with that role after being abandoned by his own father, he says — which is what inspired “Jay-Z Blue.” “He didn’t teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child, or treat a woman,” he reveals about the track. “It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.” He also toys with the duality between heaven and hell in the potentially incendiary track “Heaven”: “It’s just not my belief that just God will make you burn for eternity for free will that He gave you.”

The album is shaping up to be a major release, with features from previous collaborators like Beyonce, Frank Ocean and Justin TimberlakeMCHG drops on July 4 exclusively to Samsung Galaxy owners before it’s released worldwide.
