    Cool downloading now.

    I wonder if a simple build prop edit will allow non Samsung owners to download it as well.

    What am I doing wrong. I got the app, installed it, shared to twitter, no album, even though I selected Explicit. :eek:

    Thanks for the reminder!

    I am one of those guys who listens to heavy music, but for some reason Jay Z is a and always has been a guilty pleasure.

    Thanks @ OP


    BTW .... Unrelated, but Kanye's new Album is pure trash. I'm not feeling one track. Pretty sure Jay's Album will have some hits.

    Downloaded it this morning, love the app.
    Also as an fyi, if you have downloaded the app, then that means you are confirmed to be getting the album once it is released on the 4th.

    Downloaded early this morning and the album is actually pretty good. Heaven and Somewhereinamerica sound just like vintage Jay Z. Not bad for a freebie, I might be a believer yet, nice cookie Samsung.

    Edit - also it's for the first million downloads so just because you downloaded the app doesn't guarantee you'll get the album.

    Is it just me or can you only play album within the app? I downloaded the album, but doesn't show anywhere else.

    It downloaded straight to my music folder and I've been streaming it all morning with air sync double twist to my xbox.

    You might want to download a 'media rescan' app from the play store. That's why u probably can't find it.

    Downloaded it this morning. Saved to the internal memory. Went to the MY Files app and copied it to iTunes, retagged (came with no artwork and song titles had extra info like (album version), (explicit)) and re-dragged to my SD Card for play in the Google Music app. Deleted the app.

    Good album.
