Two of the biggest tracks off Jay-Z & Kanye West’s joint project, “Watch The Throne” continue to sell as “N*ggas In Paris” goes THREE TIMES PLATINUM, and “No Church In The Wild” reaches GOLD status.

Congrats to the duo of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, whose 2009 single, “Empire State of Mind,” which samples the 60’s soul ballad “Love On A Two Way Street,” reached the 5 million mark in sales this week.
The hit off Hova’s The Blueprint 3, won two Grammies for Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sun Collaboration in 2011, and was nominated for 2011 Record of the Year. It’s the first single performed by Jay-Z or Alicia Keys to go platinum five times over, a feat approached by each and unrealized until now. It’s been said that Mary J. Blige was considered for the vocals, but that Keys’ skills won her out. Congrats to these two !!
