Not surprising that Jay-Z’s latest effort “Magna Carta Holy Grail“ do well, between the YouTube promos, the partnership with Samsung and Jay-Z being…well Jay-Z, it was the perfect storm.
Hova has managed to hit the 525,000 mark in sales for Magna Carta Holy Grail in it’s first week, easily out doing his completion and going on to scoring his 12th #1 album.
Technically speaking, this would actually bring is total sales in one week above 1.5 million, but since Billboard had counted the first million distributed via the 1 week early Samsung release.
Ciara’s self-titled album didn’t stand a chance this week, while J. Cole’s album moved down two spots from #1 last week, to #3 this week. Official Soundscan numbers drop tomorrow.
