As if it hasn’t already racked up enough accolades — like instant platinum certificationJay-Z‘s ‘Magna Carta… Holy Grail‘ has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. According to Billboard, the record sold 527,000 first-week copies — well above its 475K projections.

This earns Hov his thirteenth No. 1 album, which leaves him six behind The Beatles, who currently hold the record with an astonishing 19. There’s no denying Jay’s competitive nature, but does he even have six more projects left in him?

Elsewhere on the chart, Ciara‘s new self-titled album debuted at No. 2 with 57,515 units sold in its opening week. J. Cole‘s ‘Born Sinner’ trumped ‘Yeezus’ for a second week running, selling 38,718 to Kanye‘s 28,701, while Wale‘s ‘The Gifted’ dropped to No. 7 after topping the chart a fortnight ago.
