J. Cole's "Born Sinner" Goes Gold, Jay Z's "Magna Carta" Stays at No. 1

J. Cole's "Born Sinner" Goes Gold, Jay Z's "Magna Carta" Stays at No. 1

Jay Z continues his reign at the top of the Billboard charts, with Magna Carta Holy Grail selling close to 128K in its second week. Jay's album also holds historic significance, as Magna Carta is the first rap album in nearly two years to spend two straight weeks in the number one position, the last being Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV in 2011.

Hov's fellow Roc Nation artist, J. Cole, comes in at number eight on the charts with Born Sinner. At 27K sold, Born Sinner has now surpassed the 500K mark, marking Cole's second consecutive album to go gold. While Cole may have lost the June 18 sales battle, he's certainly won the war, with Kanye West's Yeezus (17K) and Mac Miller's Watching Movies with the Sound Off (7K) dropping considerably since their release.
