Jay-Z drops his Apple iPhone for what we assume is a Samsung Galaxy S4
We've seen celebrities change phones before, like Jennifer Lopez who switched from a BlackBerry to a Nokia Lumia 920. Jessica Alba dropped her Apple iPhone (not figuratively) for what would eventually be a Nokia Lumia 920. But neither starlet received $20 million smackers to change platforms like Jay-Z did. Are we really surprised? This guy can walk into a dung-filled landfill and walk out smelling like a rose...and with 30 endorsements.

The rapper as entrepreneur model started years ago with Sean Combs, but Jay-Z might do it even better. His deal with Samsung allows 1 million Galaxy device owners to download the new Magna Carta Holy Grail album72 hours before it drops in stores.

Comparing a couple of tweets sent by Jay-Z, one from April before the deal was announced and the second one just days before the deal was announced, we can see that Jay-Z did indeed drop his Apple iPhone for an Android model. Which one? We'd guess that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is now the phone in Jay-Z's hand.
