JAY-Z’s new album, “4:44,” is officially a hit.
The 47-year-old rapper’s latest offering has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) less than two weeks after it was released on June 30. Even more impressive, the album was originally only available exclusively through Tidal and to pre-existing subscribers, as well as Sprint customers. Earlier last week, it became available to all Tidal users.
The RIAA tweeted JAY-Z’s major accomplishment last Wednesday.
“‘4:44’ Goes Platinum – JAY-Z’s 13 Platinum (or higher) solo studio Album Awards are more than any other hip hop artist,” the RIAA’s official account tweeted.
“Props to JAY, he’s done it again!” the RIAA also tweeted alongside a photo of the rapper posing with his plaque. “‘4:44’ Certified Platinum. Another Platinum album adds to an already iconic career.”
JAY-Z’s deeply personal album addresses the theme of infidelity on wife Beyonce’s critically acclaimed “Lemonade” — including that infamous elevator fight with Beyonce’s sister, Solange, at the 2014 Met Gala — as well as his beef with former close pal Kanye West.
