Frank Ocean and Jay-Z will collaborate for Hova's upcoming album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail."
 
Ocean will make an appearance on the track "Oceans," reports Digital Spy. The song and its lyrics were confirmed through Jay-Z's Samsung app. 
 
“Magna Carta Holy Grail” is Jay-Z's first solo album in four years. It comes after his extremely successful "Watch the Throne" collaboration with Kanye West. 
 
"Magna Carta Holy Grail" will be released through a distribution deal with Samsung with cell phone owners allowed early access to the album if they download an app for the new project to their wireless handsets. 
 
The first million people to download the app will receive the new record on July 4, three days before its release date.

Billboard has announced that they won't count the 1 million copies purchased by Samsung toward the artist's chart totals. But with the $5 million he is taking away from the deal -- Samsung paid $5 a piece for each copy of the album -- that is most likely the least of his concerns. 
 
And if “Magna Carta Holy Grail” matches the first week sales of his last solo album, "The Blue Print 3" -- it sold 476,000 copies in its debut week -- he will be well on his way to platinum status and most likely claim another No. 1 chart ranking without the assistance of the albums purchased by Samsung. 
 
Along with Ocean, Justin Timberlake, who Jay-Z performed with on "Suit & Tie," has also been confirmed as a guest on the project.
