LL Cool J talks Jay-Z album sales
The first week numbers for Jay-Z’s newest album Magna Carta Holy Grail are in and there is one rapper who is speaking their mind about them.
In case you have not heard, Samsung bought 1 million copies of the album (Digitally) for distribution on their smartphones. This allowed the album to go Platinum in a week following new changes to RIAA rules.
Rap legend LL Cool J weighed in on the matter, “Numbers are numbers. In the numbers is truth, but in terms of touching the people it’s a little different.”
“For me as an artist I still want to be able to touch the people individually.”
“It still matters to me that people individually went out and bought my record. Although I still think a million sold is a million sold, but for me I like to know that a million PEOPLE bought my record, not a company bought a million copies of my record.”
