Jay-Z Reaches Another Milestone With 4:44
It’s fair to say that Jay-Z is one of the best hip-hop artists of all time. As a solo artist, he has more number one albums than anyone else in music history. True hip-hop fans know that The Jigga Man will continue to make an effort to raise the bar in the industry.
Jay-Z’s new album, 4:44, is the legend’s 13th studio album. To be honest, some were shocked that he released this album at this time. With the birth of newborn twins, one would imagine that his personal life would not give him enough time to create and promote a new album. Jay continues to prove that he should never be underestimated.
The 4:44 album made a big splash during its first week on the market. It secured the number one spot on the Billboard 200. This hot new album managed to move 262,000 units. This is extremely impressive when you consider the fact that Jay has been in the business for over 25 years. It’s very hard for hip hop artists to stay relevant for a long period of time. For example, the chances of L.L. Cool J. releasing another album are extremely slim.
With Tidal and promotional giveaways at his disposal, it’s fair to say that 4:44 will continue to do well in the upcoming months. The numbers show that 4:44 is the fourth best début album of the year. Kendrick Lamar’s album (DAMN) reigns supreme at the moment.
Jay-Z has emerged as a talented rap artist and music mogul. After listening to 4:44, one must admit that he hasn’t lost his touch. This new album shows that Jay can smash bars and flow on any beat with ease. Will he pull another ace out of his sleeve soon?
