As we reported back in July, Jay-Z was the first artist in recording history to earn a Platinum plaque on the release date of an album. Now, about two months later, Jay’s Magna Carta Holy Grail is now certified double Platinum by the RIAA.
The RIAA took to their Facebook page to make the announcement of Jay-Z’s MCHG hitting the 2-million sales mark.
The status update reads:
Congratulations to Jay Z! Not satisfied with Platinum alone, “Magna Carta…Holy Grail” is now DOUBLE-Platinum for selling more than two million copies in the United States.
