Jay Z Covers Billboard Magazine

Jay Z Timbaland Swizz Beatz Pharrell William Rick Rubin

Aging rap mogul Jay Z is trying his hardest to outshine his wife Beyonce in the magazine covers department. Jay’s cartoonish mug graces an all-blue cover of Billboard magazine’s current issue. Jigga also dropped another Samsung commercial touting his upcoming album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, during last night’s game 7 of the NBA Finals. Producers on ‘Magna Carta’ include left to right: Timbaland, Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams and Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin.

Samsung recently signed Jay Z to a $20 million endorsement deal. The electronics giant bought up 1 million copies of ‘Magna Carta,’ but, to be fair to other artists who don’t have deep pocket sponsors, the million copies sold will not be counted toward his final 1st week sales tally.

See the Billboard cover after the break.

      ^^ i don’t think Samsung’s purchases should count towards the official numbers cuz the numbers should reflect the actual demand of the product. I think they need to find a way to stop the record labels from buying all those albums in an attempt to boost sound scan numbers. That’s cheating to me.

      While cold water shrinks pores, you still need the hot water to open up the poors to clean the dirt out. Clean with hot water first then dip your face in ice water or rinse.

      NO relationship is perfect. I think it’s important for us to look at OUR faults instead of telling our partner how THEY need to change. It’s the stuff we hate about others that are most dominant in ourselves. Any relationship takes work, it may not feel like work, but it’s work. If you bite your tongue at something smart, that’s work. If you fix your mate a meal you hate, that’s work. Laughing at silly jokes, watching sports, Lifetime, LAHHATL, etc etc. all work to make your relationship work and to keep your mate happy
