This week, Jay-Z released a (fantastic) new album (that you should definitely check out), NASA remained wonderful, and ESPN gave us another heartwarming story.
Magna Carta Holy Grail
Although Jay-Z's new album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," was available last week for Samsung users, it was officially released on Tuesday and immediately became his 12th platinum album. He collaborated with artists like Justin Timberlake, Beyonce (of course), and Frank Ocean, and producers like Timbaland and 16-year-old girl Ebony Oshunrinde aka Wondagurl. There's been plenty of hype surrounding the album, especially because RIAA changed one of its rules in order to certify "Magna Carta Holy Grail" platinum even before it was released to the public. Then, of course, Jay-Z took to Twitter to do an impromptu Q&A with his followers, where he addressed his favorite cereal growing up (Cap'n Crunch); ranked MCHG as his fourth best album (behind "Reasonable Doubt," "Blueprint," and "The Black Album"); shared his favorite track ("Oceans"); and ended most tweets with #factsonly and #mylaugh. It's been a pretty good week for Jay-Z.
