(AllHipHop News) JAY-Z owns the record for most platinum albums by a rapper with 17.
The Tidal owner’s new 4:44 LP was certified platinum last week, just days after its release on June 30.
JAY is also the leader for the most Billboard 200 #1 albums by a solo artist.
It appears he’s about to earn a 14th chart leader to extend his record.
According to HitsDailyDouble, 4:44 is on pace to collect 250,000 – 275,000 sales plus streaming units (150,000 – 175,000 traditional sales) in its first full week of wide release.
That total should be enough to get JAY back to #1 on next week’s Billboard 200.
Hov’s 13th solo album also became accessible on iTunes, Amazon, and other retailers in week two.
As a result, the chart units for its first week were not able to be calculated.
JAY-Z only trails The Beatles on the list of most career #1 albums.
The legendary rock band has 19 Billboard 200 toppers.
