As a teaser for Jay-Z‘s upcoming album, Magna Carta Holy GrailSamsung released three short videos in which Jay-Z describes the inspiration behind some of his new songs. From “Heaven,” to “Oceans,” to “Holy Grail,” Hov breaks down to Rick Rubin, Pharell, and Timbaland his emotions and reasons behind each piece.

Most likely, you’ll refer to that old coat with holes in it that never kept you warm in the winter, or the high heels in your mother’s closet that your 6-year-old feet prayed they’d one day fit inside.
