Jay-Z Previews New Song ‘Oceans’ Featuring Frank Ocean

Jay-Z

The countdown is on to Magna Carta Holy Grail. With exactly one week to go, Jay-Z continues to tease with more goodies. After revealing the lyrics to the Justin Timberlake-assisted “Holy Grail” earlier in the week, HipHop-N-More has unearthed the lyrics to “Oceans” featuring Frank Ocean.

Jay explains the meaning behind the piano-driven song. “It sounds like a celebration of where we are now on some big yacht, throwing champagne in the water,” he tells Rick Rubin. “But the undertow of the thing is that this is the same water that brought us here originally as slaves, so it has this old duality and how we are rewriting history.”

On July 4, Samsung will release 1 million free copies of Magna Carta Holy Grail to Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, and Note II owners before the rest of the world receives it on July 9.

Listen to a preview of “Oceans” in the video below.

    Now these lyrics are real music. Now people just want to rap or sing about nothing, but when you have a message in your song THAT’S what really sells. Not this other nonsense some artists put out.

    Now Hov is one of my favs but it is clearly obvious he is feeding off the energies of King Cole’s Born Sinner and King Kanye’s Yeezus. Guess this makes up a hiphop holy trinity of sorts music wise….Magna Carta!!!!!

    Remember Nas placed that history first about slaves. The Untitled Album… You feel me! Now Jay and Kanye are doing the same thing. I am with these albums that bring substance. I have always wanted Jay to come back and tell a story. Nas took chances with his music. Screw the radio!!!Jay’s other material was weak since the Black Album. His latest commercial garbage with Kanye was horrible! It was dancing music for the clubs!!!! Come on, bring that heat Jay! Stand up New York! Nas and Jay run this game! New York State of Mind!
