Listen: Jay-Z's "Holy Grail" ft. Justin Timberlake

Hova quotes Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" in 'Magna Carta Holy Grail' single
 / 

On July 4, while much of America flipped burgers on the BBQ, guzzled domestic beer and narrowly avoided blowing off their fingers with illegal fireworks, Jay-Z's latest album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, arrived to one million Samsung users. 

If you, like me, have an iPhone, well, Jay-Z's Life + Times website is streaming first single "Holy Grail" in advance of the album's arrival to the masses on Sunday. The title track features Justin TImberlake crooning the silky-smooth hook, and Hova name-checking the chorus to Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (don't worry, he got Courtney Love's permission). Listen above. And for more Magna Carta, check out the LP artwork or, if you're in England, go check it out at Salisbury Cathedral next to THE ACTUAL MAGNA CARTA (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
