“Magna Carta Holy Grail” goes platinum before it was even released! Oh no wait…

We still have to wait two more weeks to finally hear the new material by Jay-Z but the album is already in the top of mind of everybody in the music industry.

One million Samsung Galaxy owners will be able to download a "Magna Carta Holy Grail" app and hear the album on July 4th, three days before everybody else. However that one million don't "exist" according to Billboard Magazine.

Billboard's weekly music charts won't count the copies sold to Samsung because nothing is actually getting sold to people. You can download the app for free and then, you can hear the album for free so... Billboard has a point.

Jay-Z holds the record for most number one albums by a solo artist on the Billboard 200 (twelve). Now we have to wait until "Magna Carta..." gets to the stores to see what happen. The only question in my mind: if Jay-Z is so sure about being incredible popular why he doesn't get rid of Justin Timberlake and goes on tour by himself?
