In its second week on the charts, Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne has become one of the few Hip Hop releases this year to achieve gold certification for moving more than 500,000 units.

The album, which holds court at the top of the Billboard 200 for the second consecutive week, sold an additional 177,000 copies, upping its overall cume to 613,000 albums sold since its release. This also marks the first week that both digital and physical editions of the LP were available for the entirety of the sales period.

Additional albums released this year that received gold certification include Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers, Beyonce’s 4 and Chris Brown’s F.A.M.E.
