Jay-Z's album '4:44' debuts atop Billboard 200 chart

Jay-Z's new confessional and political release, "4:44," finally entered the Billboard 200 album chart, storming to the top spot and scoring his 14th number one release. 
The rapper and producer sold 262,000 units to earn the fourth-highest one-week album sales total of 2017.  
The album was released on June 30 as a one-week exclusive to members of his streaming platform Tidal and customers of wireless carrier Sprint Corp.  
Despite being certified platinum in its first week, "4:44" was absent from last week's Billboard 200 album chart because Tidal did not report numbers to Nielsen Music.
Jay-Z already holds the record as the most successful solo artist on the Billboard 200 chart.
His 14 albums debuting at number one beats tallies by Bruce Springsteen and Barbra Streisand.
