Jay-Z Receives Platinum Plaque For MCHG / by

Thanks to Samsung, Jay-Z has another platinum album under his belt. The critically acclaimed "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album was given away for free to Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet holders. One million to be exact. Normally, digital album sales are counted until after 30 days of the album's release.

But Jay had the power to change it up. The RIAA are now allowing digital album sales to be counted during the day the album is released. So congratulations Mr. Carter.
