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 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake dudes in bathingsuits wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. It's been reported that HyunA's new EP will show a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation tenfold.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
