Jay-Z’s new album “4:44” became his 14th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 album chart Sunday, less than two weeks after it went instantly platinum thanks to an exclusive deal between Tidal and Sprint.
The 47-year-old rapper is now second only to The Beatles for the most No. 1’s in history. The legendary English band holds the all-time record with 19 No. 1 albums.
According to Nielsen Music, “4:44” earned 262,000 album-equivalent units last week, of which 174,000 were traditional album sales or downloads.
