The '99 Problems' rapper's latest album has sold additional 129,000 copies in its second week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Jay-Z's "Magna Carta... Holy Grail" is still unbeatable, as it stays at the very top spot on Billboard 200. The rapper's latest album debuted at the same position last week after selling 528,000. This week, Nielsen SoundScan reported that the album managed to sell additional 129,000 copies.
