Jay-Z new album Magna Carta Holy Grail was certified platinum on the first day of its release on July 9th.
Thanks to a deal with Samsung, more than a million people already listening to Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Jay-Z has his platinum plaque to answer the critics.
The RIAA policy previously required albums to be available for at least 30 days before being eligible for platinum certification.
However, Jay-Z prompted the organization to change that rule, calling it old and out dated.
Magna Carta Holy Grail is projected to sell an additional 450,000 copies in its first week of release.
