    I mean just cause you undestand English don't mean you get the references, plus overseas people look for rap to dance to it and not to dissect the lyrics

    Jay never really had a big club hit like all those you named and I named 50/snoop because they were of that era

    Are those 2 washed up now? Yep but they still more popular than jay in Europe that's a fact

    She expanded his fame, that’s a fact. Jay was always famous after Vol 2, but once Beyoncé really took off around the I Am Sasha Fierce album, everybody knew who Jay was

    You're sure it's not the fact that Jay dropped his two biggest songs ever :unimpressed:

    Have you been outside of your state? :why:


    Jay-z headlined the biggest festival in Europe 11 years ago.
    Same arena 50 cent did once after 7-8 years, Jay and them do like every other year a couple nights.

    I don't know if you know this but they even sold The Source Magazine, had the exact same MTV and on as the US. And it's only accelerated with the internet.

    He did but at that point the Beyoncé connection was already established breh

    Plus the fake retirement helped too

    Are u saying Beyoncé didn’t take his fame to a new level? :mjtf:

    Seeing how after the Sasha Fierce album, Jay was outselling Beyonce, I'd say they must've complemented each other.
    Of course as far as paparazzi goes, but we are talking music here. Tyga was all over paparazzi when he was with Kylie, still did like 2000 copies.


    Beyonce did 650k in first week, Jay did whatever he did on Tidal but had his biggest solo tour ever, but their collabo album, which was dope, no one cared. Why? Because often Beyonce fans don't give a fukk about Jay-z and the reverse is true. People listen to what they fukk with, only the deepest stans would listen to completely different music due to one musician you like being married to that person.

    I really think this discussion is too advanced for people, dudes try find out why Jay-z is successful with the most basic thoughts :snoop:

    50 Cent has been doing the 02 regularly since 2015 now, and festival gigs just depends on how good your booking agent is

    50 Cent has outsold him in the UK too album wise, Idk about the rest of Europe.

    4:44 hasn't even sold 60k copies in the UK
