With The Blueprint III already working its way to the two million sold albums mark, Jay-Z has announced plans to keep the cameras rolling with more music videos for the project.

Speaking freely about what he has in store, Hovi revealed a couple possible videos he might add to the collection.

"I wanna shoot 'Venus vs. Mars,'" Jay said in an interview. "I may shoot two -- I shot 'Run This Town' [and 'D.O.A. (Death of Auto Tune)'], I been shooting two at the same time. I'll probably shoot 'Venus' and maybe 'A Star Is Born.' But I definitely wanna shoot 'Venus' -- I got an amazing concept in my mind." (MTV)

Since dropping worldwide last September, Jay's new album has already passed the 1.5 million sold copies mark.

Rap mogul Jay-Z's The Blueprint III also fell 13 slots to No. 43 with 18,600. Going into his 24th week, Hovis' latest number one debuting album has cracked open 1,615,500 copies to date. (SOHH Sales Wrap)

The album, according to Jay, has also received presidential approval.

Rapper Jay-Z said President Barack Obama was among his biggest fans and that he frequently played the artist's explicit tunes while exercising, it was reported Friday. The 10-time Grammy award winner said in an interview with U.K. broadcaster the BBC that the President enjoyed working up a sweat to the sounds of Jay-Z's latest album, Blueprint 3. "Barack loves hip hop. When I called him he was playing Blueprint in the gym," the star said. (My Fox)

Still welcoming in his latest effort's success, the rapper is also reportedly plotting a Blueprint III follow-up.

"Maybe. I got some ideas," the rapper said about a new album in 2010. "I didn't start yet, I just got a bunch of ideas. Maybe if I get into a nice zone...I'm on my way, just ideas." ("The Ed Lover Show")
