Jay-Z’s Album 4:44 Not Platinum???

So Jay-Z lied about his album’s numbers? According to BuzzAngle, Jay-Z’s current album, 4:44, actually sold much less than 500,000 copies or downloads.

4:44 did not reach platinum status, despite the RIAA issuing him a platinum plaque for that photo op last month.

Jay-Z’s people claimed the rap mogul’s album was downloaded or streamed aver a million times in one week. But even that is a lie according to some reports online.


“The fact that 4:44 has sold so much less than 500,000 is startling,” writes Roger Friedman on his Showbiz411 blog.

According to BuzzAngle, ''4:44 has sold a total of 264,100 albums. That includes CDs and downloads but not streaming. If you count in streaming, including singles, the number still comes only to 364,000.

This is a far cry from the 500,000 level that the RIAA requires for a gold record, and 1 million copies shipped for platinum. Still, the RIAA awarded Jay Z a platinum album based on private sales through Tidal streaming and direct deliveries to Sprint customers.''

But why the hate tho? Lol.
