Jay-Z MOVES 528K Copies Of "Magna Carta Holy Grail", Announces European Tour Dates + Robin Thicke's "The Good Life" Single
Jay-Z debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, moving 528K units of MCHG last week. Find out when his MCHG tour will be headed to Europe inside and hear Robin Thicke's "The Good Life" single.
After he hit up Bey's (she's rocking a printed Topshop look) hometown return in Houston for the Mrs. Carter Show (above) last night, Jay-Z's critically acclaimed disc Magna Carta Holy Grail debuted atop the Billboard Hot 200 today, moving 528,208 units. But he wasn't the only new addition to the charts. Ciara's Ciara moved 57,515 units while J. Cole shifted 38,718 units and Kanye West push 28,701 copies of Yeezus.
Although Hova has already garnered a platinum plaque, thanks to Samsung's Magna Carta app, those sales will not count towards his Billboard tally. And in celebration of the disc's success, Jay-Z's hitting the road. Now that he's nabbed Teen Choice Award noms for Choice Summer Music Star: Male, and Choice Summer Tour (with Justin Timberlake) he's announced the new “Magna Carta World Tour” – European Dates.
