Jay-Z continues to write new chapters in music history, collecting his 14th number 1 spot on Billboard’s 200 album chart.
The already platinum 4:44 debuted at No. 1 with 262,000 equivalent album sales with 174,000 of that number coming in traditional album sales.
With this latest accomplishment, Jay-Z has become the first solo artist with the most number 1 albums in Billboard’s 61-year history. Only The Beatles have more albums land at Number 1 with 19 chart topper albums in their own historic career.
4:44 album sales generated the fourth-largest week of 2017 trailing only Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (603,000), Drake’s More Life (505,000) and Ed Sheeran’s ÷ (Divide) (451,000).
Can anyone stop Hov?
