Jay-Z has the power. The release strategy adopted by him for his 13th album Magna Carta Holy Grail sparked a huge debate as to whether he has already gone platinum by proving 1 million downloads of the album exclusively through Samsung. A couple of weeks ago, visit this link SoundScan said that it will not count the “sales” because an album must be sold by a label/artist/music company to a retailer (Target, Best Buy, Amazon etc.) at a minimum of one-third of the album’s suggested Retail Price, for it to be counted for Billboard charting.

RIAA, however said that the only thing that will stop Jay from achieving the Platinum status will be a rule which says that an album can become eligible for certification only 30 days after its release date.

Today, the RIAA in a press release has visit this link announced that they have changed that very rule in wake of the debate created by Jay-Z’s upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail release. The 30-day rule existed “to take into account potential returns of physical product – CDs, cassettes, vinyl, etc. that could be shipped to brick and mortar retailers and returned, in which case our auditors do not count the sales.“

That means that from now on, “sales of albums in digital format will become eligible on the release date, while sales of albums in physical format will still become eligible for certification 30 days after the release date.“

The above change in the rules will mean that Jay-Z’s album will become eligible for Platinum status upon its release on July 4th. Neilsen SoundScan though is yet to announce any change to the same effect which will enable Magna Carta Holy Grail to debut on top of the Billboard charts.

Soundscan count actual sales and have an officiel chart

Riaa don't they just hand out plaques after you pay them

Untill soundscan décides to change the rules nothing will change, although if more and more artists do this then they will have to, but as it stands the soundscan will not count the sales and it will show on the chart.

So what happens when artists like Eminem, Wayne, Drake, Nicki, etc want to start "buying" platinum plaques like this ???

Rick Ross could've asked Reebok to use his $5 million endorsement money to buy his albums instead and package them with shoes. Then Rick Ross would've "bought" the first platinum plaque of his career.

Regardless of who's doing it, this shyt could end up being one of the worst trends in music history, but of course due to who's a.ssociated with it, people are gonna praise it and I'm sure those same people will probably come at me after this post.

thing is though a purchase is a purchase, and samsung purchased a million copies

like someone passing a cd to you after they bought it. there still was a purchase right? even though the listener didnt purchase the album.
