Jay-Z's '4:44' Finally Makes it to Billboard 200 chart at No. 1

Wochit Headline News - Monday, 17 July 2017
Jay-Z's new candid and political release, "4:44," finally entered the Billboard 200 album chart, storming to the top spot and scoring his 14th Number 1 release. The rapper and producer sold 262,000 units of "4:44," according to data from Nielsen SoundScan on Monday, to earn the fourth-highest one-week album sales total of 2017. However, despite the critical praise and publicity for "4:44," Nielsen-reported sales were well below the 2017 debuts of rapper Kendrick Lamarโ€™s "DAMN.", with 603,000 units, Drakeโ€™s "More Life" and Ed Sheeranโ€™s "Divide."
