Jay-Z Covers Billboard

Jay-Z and his Samsung deal, #newrules tweet and all, cover the new issue of Billboard. Bill Werde’s cover story will be up on the Billboard site tomorrow.

UPDATE: Werde’s article us up now. The gist of it is, Billboard won’t count the 1 million albums purchased by Samsung towards the chart placement of the album, but that could change in the future. Interestingly enough, even with the Samsung giveaway, Werde cites sales projections for MCHG of between 400,000 and 450,000 units.

    Jay-Z can be such a schmuck.

    Werde didn’t write the cover story, he wrote an editorial explaining how the Jay album would be treated. Andrew Hampp wrote the cover story. Link to the cover story: http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/1567999/jay-zs-new-blueprint-the-billboard-cover-story
