Original Story:

We know what y'all are asking yourselves. Is he gon' ever fall off? It doesn't appear so, because after over two decades in the game, JAY-Z can still put numbers on the boards. And not just in the U.S. Within 24 hours of being made available on iTunes and Apple Music, Jigga's new 4:44 album shot up to No. 1 on the iTunes charts in countries all over the world.

Thirty-eight countries to be exact, according to Roc Nation's stats. These countries include United States, UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Sweden, South Africa, Finland, Poland, Malaysia, India, Panama, Sri Lanka, Anguilla, Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Botswana, Ghana, Indonesia, Israel, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Trinidad and Tobago, Saudi Arabia, Mozambique, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

The new album, Jay's 13th, has already been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Earlier this week, Hov posed for a picture with RIAA Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman with the plaque for the album. “Props to JAY, he’s done it again!” said Sherman in a statement. “Another Platinum album adds to an already iconic career.”

The feat didn't even take a full seven days, and was accomplished by Jigga using his Magna Carter Holy Grail blueprint. Hov teamed wit Sprint and dropped the LP exclusively through Tidal before making the project available for a “free” download. Customers didn't have to pay, but Sprint had already footed the bill for those albums.

Hov’s 13th platinum album puts him in a class all by himself. He now has more than any other artist in RIAA history.
