With less than 24 hours til the release of Jay-Z‘s ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’ (for Samsung device owners) fans were treated to the release of the cover work this afternoon!
After announcing that one million lucky samsung users (myself included) would be able to download the album for free starting tomorrow, the debate quickly began as to whether the album would officially be deemed platinum status after it’s July 4th release (before the general public can purchase on July 9). The RIAA initially shot down this theory by saying that the giveaways would not count toward Jay-Z’s album sales, so ultimately it would not be platinum the first day. However, it appears the RIAA has had a change of heart just in time for the release!! Get into the full statement and details HERE.
