  • freethetroops

  • Black Shady

  • B

    ^^You still asleep dawg? wft are you talking about? You implying someone lying about this? RIAA? Or he buying his own song a million times on iTunes? ahaha

  • Uh-oh

    I love the song but it seems fishy. If not, congrats and thank JT for the pop market sales.

    “^^You still asleep dawg? wft are you talking about? You implying someone lying about this? RIAA? Or he buying his own song a million times on iTunes? ahaha”

    I don’t listen to the radio or watch music channels . you obviously do . I wan’t implying that someone is lying about it , but it certainly doesn’t seem right .

    You do know that Record labels are able to buy their own records for a better look , right ?

  • DK

    ^ Jay-Z strikes me as someone who’d buy is own song on iTunes a million times just for the certification and to keep the compliments rolling in. He’s been dickridden for so long now that I’m pretty sure he’d freak the fuck out if he went 45 seconds without it.

    Also, this song is mediocre at best. I love JT’s music and always look forward to him doing a rap hook, but that was some overdramatic bullshit and it sounded like he was up all night listening to Bruno Mars before he recorded it.

    Also, for chrissake, rappers need to stop using the 2 Chainz “Mercy” flow. Knock it off.

  • Oz

    Dick rider Elliot trying to make it seem like the album went platinum then you read the fine print “The opening track” .

    @Oz catch up you ol hating ass nigga…..the album already went platinum bitch ass!

  • TruthBeTold

    I agree with DK .

    Everyone who bought this single say so . Those who haven’t , say so .

    Let’s do a little tally ..

  • LOL

    i heard niggas bump this shit ridin around so i don’t know what people talkin bout sayin that nobody listens to this track. people just quick to hate.

  • DK

    @LOL

    Yeah, almost as quick as people are to call someone a hater at the first sight of criticism. It’s the hip hop version of “I know you are but what am I?”

  • Jav

    I’m from Santa Barbara, CA the home of we only play music on the radio that is hype and this song has been on heavy rotation up here. Even little ho’s be screen shooting the song and putting it up on IG. This was the opening track to their tour. If it doesn’t make sense to you then you’re music ears must only stay on datpiff or something.

  • name_is_here_now

    Every girl friend I have absolutely loves this song. Several have bought his whole album solely for this track. I hate to break it to you guys, but you are but a drop in the bucket of life. There are others out there who act, think, look, sound, smell, and even hear different than yourselves. I know, it’s scary, but it is undoubtedly true.

    Quit acting so shocked and appalled when facts and numbers clearly prove you wrong day after day. It’s not a good look for you, makes you look ignorant and close minded. Maybe you are, but also maybe you can change. Then again, you most likely cannot change and are doomed to repeat the mistakes of your father.

  • Dashing

    Ya’ll are wildin. It’s Jay-z and Justin Timberlake. It’s an obvious hit record and they’ve been going around the country performing it to sold out audiences. You really don’t think that could go platinum???

  • Black-Night

    QUICK YOU BETTER HURRY UP AND PUT IT IN THE TOP 5 POSTS ITS JAY Z

  • Blacky Dukes

    @name_is_here _now if you believe numbers, then George Bush was rightfully the president of the United States before those Florida votes got missing all of a sudden. But hey, what do i know. I’m an intelligent black man and father who does the FACTS. Pow

  • STINKMEANER

    people are paranoid lately. cmon guys, use your heads, you really think the title track off the album, featuring pop star JT wouldn’t go plat? cmon now, this is one of the most likely songs on the album that casual fans will buy.

  • Angelo

    @ name_is_here_now … Facts & Numbers huh? Yet you say it’s about people having opinions, which means nothing is factual! Numbers say absolutely nothing about quality of product anymore, let alone in the Rap genre. How about this for you, Jay is the still best “Rap Artist” keyword Rap Artist, not MC! The ability to stay current with the times and current with the likings of the younger minds and souls. Absolutely have to give that to him. Especially when u consider his last 5 albums have been marketing strategies & business concepts more than Artistic Value. Yeah his albums do numbers, and as soon as the album passes with time, almost nobody except the Top 40 listeners of the world listen to anything from Kingdom Come, BP3, WTT or MCHG. That’s a Fact for you! In the words of Christopher Walken in Wedding Crashers…”he says he does art, he smears his blood on a paint brush, and puts it on a canvas, it’s bullshit, that’s not art”

  • LOL

    @DK, i rather have this as platinum record than a fraud like Rick Ross or a Lil Wayne. show respect to a legend like Jay-Z, he’s here to stay and he ain’t going anywhere. Jay’s in his 40’s, this is grown folk music that’s why it’s selling.

  • Donn

    You know what I learned that life outside of blog comments and Internet still exist. There are waaaaay more ppl In the world who don’t kno about blogs, who don’t leave comments on blogs all day, who really live regular life and buy music and don’t feel the need to defend the music they like or argue why they like it over rap blogs. They buy the music and enjoy it and let little Internet nerds argue about why the artist is so successful. Music is about personal enjoyment, and obviously there’s a million ppl who enjoyed this song.

  • King

    not a Hov hater…but this is plain bullshit

    Don’t u think ALOT of JTs fans would have liked this track but not necessarily MCHG as a whole? I do hear this on the radio a lot.

    Doesn’t have to be rap fans buying it, it wasnt my fav record on the album.

  • troof

    @LOL

    Bitches Love Me is 2x platinum

    you mad????

    HA!

  • Word

    How the heck…? Anyone else think this song sold 1 million kinda quick? I mean, I know its Jay-Z and JT but still. Maybe I’m just imagining things. Great track though. Any song on this album has potential to go Gold. Songs like Picasso, Tom Ford, FuckwithmeyouknowIgotit and The Run with Beyonce have potential to go platinum too.

  • Maurib

    Blue told me remind you niggas

  • DK

    @LOL

    I respect him just fine. I’m just not someone who shits himself in excitement every time he puts out a half-assed guest verse. And how did Ross or Wayne come into the conversation? Congrats to him for being able to afford another $250,000 fur coat or whatever, but that doesn’t change the fact that this song (and the majority of that album, mind you) is barely average.

    If sales determined quality, Vanilla Ice’s ‘To The Extreme’ would be one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time.

  • Phyucku Dusumtin

    The intro and that beat drop made this song for me.

  • Wow

    Yep. That does it. I’m OFFICIALLY done scrolling down to the comment section of online posts unless I expect to see a good laugh. All of you bitter, hatin, paranoid, delusional, pessimistic, spite filled broke azz f***ks can suck the life right out of a nigga my goodness lmfao. Good luck bein broke diks.

  • Wow

    Jay-Z paved the way for your favorite rappers favorite rapper to “get money” and made most of this hiphop s**t possible and u dumb f**ks keep finding ridiculous ignorant ways to hate. Truly sad and discouraging to keep reading on a daily basis. At the same time, it paints a much clearer picture of why so many people are broke d**ks. Cant see the forest for the trees.

  • Showboat

    You see this people a platinum ablum. Not singles. . . . ALBUM!!!!!!!

    I have NEVER listened to this song all the way through.

    nobody been bumpin that

  • Scott Larock

    if you dont like Jay-Z dont comment on it on here you look stupid hating on Jay-z cause your a hater no one in rap has a music catalouge like hova.i think alot of people hate cause there basement ganstars living in momy’s basement over 21 years old Jay-Z has done so much for rap im a fan but i like maybe 5 SONGS off MCHG.stop hating he is beyond rich and married to beyonce.HOVA started from nothing he is the ultimate hustler.jay is not like drake or 2 chainz drake was semi rich and grew in upscale toronto and 2 chainz is like 38 years old but has retarted songs like fed’s watching

  • Truth Is

    LOL the hate is real. Did you niggas forget that Hov & JT just did a summer tour plus they’ve been around forever. That touring definitely helped push sales and they both have true core fanbases. JT did a milli in a week so this single going platinum isn’t hard to fathom at all. Please get off your pc’s and go outside lol for real. Niggas are spending too much time on the internet speculating about petty shit nowadays lol. I can’t take you conspiracy ass niggas serious man lol.

  • Guest

    I enjoyed the album for what it was. That aside, 2 million people did not get up to go buy this album, only 1 million did.

    An artist of lesser status could do solid digits if they gave it away for free too.

    • tmb

      the single went 2x platinum not the album

      and idk because samsung isn’t giving that kind of deal to just anyone. they’re not gonna buy a million copies of just anyone’s album in advance. and give it away for free

  • debog

    you big dummies not the album the single went 2x plat!!!!

  • SpaceGhost

    To all the haters…..HE GAVE AWAY A MILLION COPIES AND STILL SOLD ANOTHER MILLION COPIES OF HIS ALBUM AND PEOPLE ARE STILL PURCHASING HIS SINGLE TOO!!!!!!

    If most of YOUR favorite rappers would have given away a million copies before releasing an album they would have sold double dust!!! Hov sold an additional million AFTER giving away a milli.

    Drake’s sales dropped 75% the second week and didn’t give away shit, so HOV WINS AGAIN!!!!!!
