Jay-Z's '4:44' album certified platinum in one week



"36% more than Jay-Z suggesting that piracy is not as dependent on exclusive windowing as we may believe", according to Muso CEO Andy Chatterley. Hova's critically-acclaimed, No I.D. -produced 4:44 is already certified platinum.

50 Cent, who is an expert in the art of social media trolling, said "4:44" is "too smart" for the streets. To go platinum this quickly, 4:44 would need to have been streamed the equivalent of 1 million times. Magna Carta Holy Grail was pre-delivered to a million Samsung customers back in 2013, and the RIAA actually changed its rules to allow the album to be certified platinum the same day it was released.

Jay-Z made headlines with 4:44 as the album features the 47-year-old addressing his relationship with wife Beyonce following the release of Lemonade and the infamous elevator fight he had with her sister Solange.

Last week, hip-hop artists from Jadakiss to Meek Mill have co-signed JAY's newest solo offering. Tidal's subscribers are comparatively low to the other streaming platforms like Spotify, and like many music fans, Snoop is clearly not a subscriber.
