On Tuesday, the day Magna Carta Holy Grail hit store shelves, Jay’s album went platinum with 1 million copies sold. Samsung bought 1 million copies of the album to gave away to their customers, which forced the Recording Industry Association of America to change their certification policy.

Prior to the rules changing, an album had to be available for 30 days before it could go platinum. But now, digital album sales are counted immediately.

Jay is expected to sale nearly 450,000 copies in it’s first week. This marks the rapper’s 12th Platinum album.
