We’ve been misspelling Jay Z’s name for the last two years. Sorry.
According to Levy, Jay Z’s label has confirmed the name change, and Billboard is abiding by his wishes, listing Jay Z, and not Jay-Z, as the solo artist with the most No. 1 records (via SPIN). What’s more, both Watch the Throne and Jay’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, credit Jay Z, and not Jay-Z, on iTunes.
On the plus side, you can still refer to him as Hov, Hova, J-Hova, Jigga, Jigga Man, Jay, Mr. Carter, and, our personal favorite, Lucky Lefty. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got about 100 articles in need of editing.
