Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ Heading To 2nd Best Debut Of 2013

(AllHipHop News) While Billboard refused to accept Jay-Z’s “new rules” and count Samsung’s 1 million free downloads as part of Magna Carta Holy Grail‘s first week sales numbers, the magazine is reporting that the album will still push enough units to claim the top spot on its album chart.

As of now Magna Carta is predicted to push 350,000 – 400,000 copies in the week ending July 14. That debut would be the second highest of the year behind his “Holy Grail” collaborator Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience which opened with 968,000 copies sold first week. It would be ahead of the next two top opening weeks, Kanye West’s Yeezus (327,000) and Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories (339,000).

This sales range will also guarantee the Brooklyn legend scores his 13th number one album on the Billboard 200. Only The Beatles’ 19 chart-toppers bests Jay’s total.

Magna Carta Holy Grail will be the fourth consecutive Hip Hop album to lead the album chart. All four LP’s were created by artists associated with Roc-A-Fella/Roc Nation. Yeezus debuted at number one followed the next week by The Gifted by Wale of Roc Nation management. J. Cole’s Born Sinner is expected to rise to the top spot this week after sitting at #2 the two previous weeks.
