JAY-Z's 4:44 album went platinum in just three days.
But it was a Tidal exclusive for its first week and those numbers including Sprint buying a ton of downloads and giving them away for free.
4:44 got its wide-release yesterday, and Hits Daily Double is projecting it moves between 250k - 275K SPS with 150K -175K of those being traditional album sales.
