Jay Z's '4:44' Not On Billboard Chart Because Tidal Kept Number Secret

(Radio.com) Jay-Z's new album 4:44 was certified platform just five days after its release and you might have expected to see it topping this week's Billboard 200 album chart.

Despite its viral traction and million-plus album equivalent certification, 4:44 is missing from this week's list. But why? According to Pitchfork, Tidal (Jay's streaming service where 4:44 was billed as an exclusive release) didn't report streaming information to the Nielsen Music powers-that-be.

A large number of units were underwritten by Sprint. Those sales factor into Jay's platinum certification but would be tossed out from chart consideration. Read more here.

Major Lazer Release 'Know No Better' Video

Major Lazer have released a new music video for their track "Know No Better," which features guest appearances from Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo.

The song is title track from the group's recently surprised released new EP. The video's director Philip Andelman shared his thoughts about the new visual: "For me, Major Lazer is the ne plus ultra of dance music videos.

"It's always been a dream of mine to work with them and be included in their insane canon. Which is where the idea for the video started, with a daydream. I used to space out all through high school about being the sickest guitarist in the world to impress girls but all I could play in real life was a quarter-speed version of Slash's solo from 'Sweet Child O'Mine.'

"I thought it could be fun to do a video that married a kid's daydream of being a Major Lazer backup dancer (i.e. the ultimate goal for any dancer out there) with the reality of quotidian ass-kickings and unbearable siblings." Watch the video here.
