Jay-Z’s ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail’ First Week Sales Projections

Billboard previously announced that the 1 million units bought and distributed by Samsung will not be accounted for in their tally of Jay-Z's Magna Carta... Holy Grail. However, it is highly unlikely that those sales will need to be factored in for Jay to top the charts. Reports predict that Hov's 13th studio album will move between 350k-400k copies in its first week. If all goes according to plan, this will be Jay's 13th number 1 album, which is second all-time, only falling short to The Beatles, who have 19.
