JAY-Z's 4:44 is a Tidal only release at this point.
Meaning we don't really have any sales info besides the numbers coming from the company he owns.
[Related: Beyoncé was asked to approve every song on JAY-Z’s 4:44.]
Nevertheless, the RIAA has seen enough to declare that 4:44 has accumulated the one million sales and streams necessary to be a Platinum album.

That gives Hov his 13th Platinum album, which is the most in Hip Hop history.

We'll see how high the 4:44 flies when it's widely released later this week.
