“He’s the man who fixed his first week sales back in 2013.”

“Fixed his first week sales?” I repeated.

“How did he happen to do that?” I asked after a minute.

“He just saw the opportunity.”

“Why isn’t he in jail?”

“They can’t get him, old sport. He’s a smart man.”

The article clearly says Samsung paid $5 for each album...so he made $5 million with no material released to the public...how can anyone hate on that?
You think he gets all of that $5 Million

They need to stop acting like every galaxy owner will care about a JayZ album....
they need to stop dreaming.
as far as copies being bought by a corporation this is unprecedent...

I would say they should ONLY count the copies that are actually downloaded by users
not the "copies" bought by samsung...

Let's be real, samsung is operating like a distribution platform here, just like ItunesStore
They only need one copy, to be able to distribute it via download
Itunes doesn't ask the labels for as many copy as people downloads them

Let's just say, Samsung paid a 5 million dollar deal to distribute exclusive content, temporarly, to his phone users

So IF that should be counted, it's only the ones downloaded by users.


1-The copies "bought" by samsung weren't even physical, or digital, and on any kind of recognized platform by the RIAA
2-Album doesn't exist yet


NOTHING makes that album platinum.

are you stupid? no sh*t itunes doesn't "buy" copies, they're a store. samsung is GIVING them out, they're a CUSTOMER

And please, do explain how someone can purchase something that is neither physical or digital. Did they buy magical copies? Metaphysical ones?

That's what I said.... are YOU stupid?

i'm saying samsung is operating like a distribution platform here, just like itunes
so saying they bought every copy
is like saying itunes buys every copy.

I just read again what I wrote
Let's be real, samsung is operating like a distribution platform here, just like ItunesStore

Itunes doesn't ask the labels for as many copy as people downloads them
How could Samsung buy different copies if they are randomly giving them away free???
if you knew anything about exploitation deal, legal use, intelectual property

you'd basically have understood, that they are paying for the right to distribute the album

The only way that they could have really "bought every copies"
is via a REAL distribution channel, recognized by RIAA

but, they didn't, they bought it out of thin air.

i maybe mistaken, but im pretty sure that more than 1 million people have the s4, so i would think this is on a "first come, first serve" basis. and it will me 1 million downloads

i dont see how this is profitable for samsung though, would like for someone to help me with that angle

I can honestly say this is the first time Jay z as a business man has really impressed me.

This is genius...

Whoever thought of this (And I doubt it was Jay) seriously had their thinking cap on..

Someone just came and did their fu*king job..
right..i feel the same way

this is literally a game changer..this is whats going to be happening in the future and we were all witnesses lol
