Jay-Z’s ‘4:44’ Album Goes Platinum, Here’s How
By: A.J. Niles
Jay-Z’s latest album “4:44” received major publicity and accolades since its release via the businessman’s music streaming platform, Tidal.
The album has already caused lots of debates on social media, as fans and critics can’t help but discuss the lyrical content, which includes wealth building, his marriage to Beyonce, as well as his troubled friendship with Kanye West.
Then of course he referenced not wanting to end up like Future and watching his son being raised by another man because he couldn’t get his act right with Beyonce.
Another sore spot for many was Jay-Z rapping that holding stacks of money to your ear on Instagram isn’t a true sign of wealth, and that of course led to Boosie responding on Instagram Live.
Looks like all the controversies have paid off.
According to the RIAA, “4:44” is now platinum.
And it doesn’t hurt that Jigga also made history in the process.
