Holy Carta: Jay-Z's "Magna Carta Holy Grail" Receives Platinum Certification...On Release Date #NewRules

Jay had another busy day.  Today was the worldwide release of  his critically acclaimed album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail"  which is on track to become his 13th, #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Charts, continuing his reign as the solo artist with the most #1 albums, only the Beatles have more, with 19.

Just a day after taking over twitter, he took over the radio (again).  He stopped by Hot 97's Angie Martinez Show for an interview with Angie.  Jay and Angie always have the best interviews.  He talked about Blue, B, fatherhood and of course the album--talking with the POTUS and much more.  Listen to it: here.

Today, Jay also received his platinum certification for MCHG.  The RIAA presented him with a plaque for 1 million sales sold.  The RIAA changed their certification rules, based on Jay's deal with Samsung--the tech giant purchased 1 million copies of the album and for the first 1 million of their Galaxy and Notepad users,who'd downloaded the Magna Carta App on June 24.

This is Jay's 12th album to receive a platinum plaque.  Congrats Mr. Carter.  Be sure to pick of Jay's now classic album!!!!  Platinum on the release date...luv it.
