Despite being made available for free to Samsung users a few days early, Jay-Z’s Magna Carta… Holy Grail has put in an impressive commercial performance.
Hov’s 12th solo LP has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart with 528,208 first-week copies sold, according to Hits Daily Double. That’s excluding the 1 million units Samsung pre-purchased, which earned MCHG instant platinum status.
Jay-Z’s Magna Carta..Holy Grail has secured the number one spot atop the UK charts. Although seven of his previous albums have entered the British Top 40, this feat marks the first time Jay-Z has ever reached the top of the charts in the UK.
Men lie,women lie, numbers don’t!
Last night, the Queen Bey came off of maternity leave just in time to kill the stage for Jay-Z’s final show at the Barclays Center. Dressed in a Brooklyn Net’s cap, she came out talking-that-talk to ‘Diva’ before giving the crowd a mean stare down for at least 30 seconds. She then burst out laughing while saying, ‘What’s up Brooklyn? I’m so glad to be here’.
‘Crazy In Love’ was next on the agenda. Jay appeared on stage a few seconds behind the time to deliver his verse, but made up for it later when he tapped Beyonce’s booty on cue (circa 2006 BET Awards). To add to the dramatics, Beyonce dropped the mic and strutted off stage at the end of the performance.
