He also has four platinum collaborative albums, including his and Kanye West's Watch the Throne.
It's the hip-hop veteran's 17th platinum plaque for an album, and his 13th for a solo release, according to Pitchfork.com.
JAY-Z 's latest album "4:44" has been certified platinum.
JAY-Z continues to dominate the news feed in the world of music, and he keeps the trend going today.
On the album, which was released on Friday, June 30, the Roc Nation mogul raps, 'You did what with who?' / What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate? The track's accompanying black-and-white animated video was previously shared, but made only available to Tidal subscribers.
For any non-Tidal subscribers curious to check out 4:44, rumor has it that the album will be available on Apple Music and iTunes beginning later this week.
50 Cent, who is an expert in the art of social media trolling, said "4:44" is "too smart" for the streets.
What makes this even more impressive for JAY-Z is the fact that 4:44 is only now available to Tidal and Sprint customers.
While these critiques aren't without merit, it's also unrealistic to expect Jay Z (and Beyoncé for that matter) to embody total and flawless wokeness.style="text-align: center;"
