JAY-Z's 4:44 Nearly Hits A Milli, Album Sparks Almost 1 Million Bootlegs

Music mogul JAY-Z might have more than just TIDAL subscribers riding out to 4:44. New reports claim his latest solo offering reached nearly a million illegal downloads in its first three days of availability.

According to reports, over half of the downloads came right from within the United States.

Jay-Z's new album 4.44 was downloaded illegally 971,196 times in the first 72 hours after its release, according to media piracy analytics specialist MUSO. Of that nearly 1 million pirated copies, 56% downloads were in the US, 5% in the UK and the rest spread out globally. (Hype Bot)

Coincidentally, rap veteran Snoop Dogg recently admitted he had to get a bootleg 4:44 copy.

"Top of the morning. I wanna shoot a shout-out to JAY-Z, just dropped another motherf*cking hot album. 4-4-4, 4-4-4. But you know what? I don't got TIDAL so a n*gga had to bootleg it to me. I'm on iTunes and sh*t, cuz. I don't understand that, y'all gotta explain that to me. I went to iTunes and couldn't find it. But my homie sent it to me. Shout-out to JAY-Z, my n*gga. He did it again. See, I ain't no hater. I love the game for what it's worth. The young n*ggas and the old n*ggas. Practice that. Practice showing love. Practice supporting other motherf*ckers other than yourself. Yeah, do that."

In less than a week, JAY's latest solo offering has already reached platinum status.

Recent reports claimed 4:44 would land on Apple Music in the coming days.

A source confirmed that 4:44 will be added to Apple Music/iTunes next week after its one-week exclusivity window on Tidal; the songs also streamed on 160 iHeartRadio stations across the U.S. after 4:44's release and they will air until midnight on July 1 on the network's Urban and Rhythmic formats. The exclusive is part of a $200 million deal the carrier signed with Tidal earlier this year. (Billboard)
