With each passing day, more details are revealed about Jay-Z’s new studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Over the last 48 hours, lyrics for several album tracks have been revealed, which include a number of featured guests. “Part II (On the Run)” looks to be a sequel to “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” with a cameo from Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé, while “BBC” features — wait for it — Beyoncé, Nas, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Timbaland, and Swizz Beatz.
In related news, The New York Post reports that city officials have approved Jay-Z’s plan to perform atop the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater to coincide with his July 8th appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. Hopefully, he’ll bring along a few of those album collaborators to perform alongside him.
