Jay-Z is projected to move 350k-400k opening week with "Magna Carta Holy Grail."
Jay-Z has already acheived platinum status for Magna Carta Holy Grail, even before the LP dropped with the RIAA changing their regulations to accomodate the legendary rapper.
Now that the album is officially released, first week sales projections have surfaced. The album is reportedly on track to move 350,000 - 400,000 opening week. This number is based in part off the pre-order sales from digital retailers like iTunes.
If the album moves this much, it'll have the #1 spot, making it Hov's 13th chart-topping debut-- thus giving him the title of the solo artist with the most #1 albums in history.
"Magna Carta Holy Grail" certified platinum
Jay-Z’s album just hit stores today, but it’s already been certified platinum. The RIAA presented the hip-hop mogul with a platinum plaque for 1 million copies sold of Magna Carta Holy Grail. It marks his 12th platinum album to date.
Samsung purchased 1 million copies of the album and gave them away to their mobile users for free via the Magna Carta app on Google Play.
Jay-Z prompted the RIAA to change its certification policy, which previously required that albums be available for 30 days prior to certification. The new policy counts digital album sales immediately upon release.
Despite its pre-release, MCHG is still expected to sell around 450,000 copies in its first week.
