Jay-Z’s new album has sold more than 500,000 units its first week. Nielsen SoundScan said late Tuesday preliminary data shows that “Magna Carta Holy Grail” moved about 527,000 copies. It will debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart this week. The album was officially released on July 7. Samsung bought and gave 1.2 million copies of the album to Galaxy mobile phone users on July 4. Billboard is not counting those sales on its charts. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)
