While JAY-Z‘s latest album 4:44 is still making headlines, it hasn’t appeared on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart yet — the album, however, has already gone platinum in its first week. 4:44 did not appear on the charts because TIDAL did not report the LP’s streaming numbers to Neilsen Music. Also, Sprint-supported downloads, of which TIDAL was in partnership with, will not counted toward the project’s ranking on the charts next week. Hov announced the dates for his upcoming 4:44 tour, which will start at the end of October and run until the end of December, although fans are anticipating more dates to come.
