Jay-Z Breaks Elvis Album Record

September 17, 2009

With Jay-Z set to score his 11th American number one album, the New York MC will be overtaking Elvis Presley as the solo artist with the most #1 LPs in US chart history.

Jay’s new Blueprint 3 is on course to top the Billboard 200 chart and has so far sold over 476,000 copies of the record.

Unfortunately for Jigga, The Beatles are still the most successful group/act on the charts in the United States, with 19 US number one albums to their name. Good luck with trying to break that record, Jay.
