So what’s a supportive wife like Beyoncé to do when her mega-popular rapper husband (Jay-Z, hello!) scores yet another hit record? Take it to Instagram!
Upon the release of Jay-Z’s latest effort Magna Carta Holy Grail to the public, he was given a platinum plaque by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling over a million copies.
Beyoncé, being overly ecstatic, uploaded a cute photo of Hova from his elementary days and wrote the phrase “Bow Down” beneath it, with the caption “Platinum #Magna Carta” alongside.
The RIAA even posted a photo of the awarding to the King of Rap, along with the Executive VP of Communications Jonathan Larry, Executive VP Mitch Glazer, and Director of Communications for the Gold & Platinum Program Liz Kennedy, to their Facebook.
The association was forced to modify its own rules, after Jay-Z sold a million copies of the record to Samsung in a partnership deal. He took the hashtag #newrules to the Cyberspace, which led RIAA to count digital sales as well.
On the other hand, Billboard, though not entirely sold on the idea, still expects first week sales bring the album straight to the top in a couple of weeks.
Beyoncé, we want to see Ivy Blue next!
