magna carta holy grail

Well, even after giving away one million copies with Samsung, Jay-Z was still able to debut number one on the charts with his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail, selling 528k copies in it’s first week. That’s fantastic for Hov & his team. 1.5M albums sold in a week pretty much? Can’t beat that in today’s day and age. Peep all the weekly hip-hop/r&b sales from the past week. Cole is still outselling Kanye West. Crazy.
