As expected, Jay Z’s "Magna Carta...Holy Grail" holds at No. 1 for a second week on the Billboard 200, selling 129,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan (down 76%). The set debuted atop the list last week with 528,000.
As "Magna Carta...Holy Grail" retains its crown, it’s the first rap album in nearly two years to spend two weeks at No. 1. The last rap album to rack up two weeks in the penthouse was Lil Wayne’s "Tha Carter IV," which led the Billboard 200 charts dated Sept. 17 and Sept. 24, 2011.
