Eminem’s ‘Crack a Bottle’ is a No. 1 Smash

Eminem

After a five-year hiatus, Eminem finds himself back in a familiar place at the top of the charts.

The Detroit rapper’s new single “Crack a Bottle” featuring Dr. Dre and 50 Cent shot to No. 1 this week on the Billboard Hot 100. The song jumped 78-1, setting a digital record for opening week download sales of 418,000.

The first-week total exceeds the prior record of 335,000 downloads set by T.I. and Rihanna for “Live Your Life.” Among all weekly totals, “Crack a Bottle” ranks third behind Flo Rida’s “Low” (467,000) and Lady GaGa’s “Just Dance” (419,000), according to Billboard.com.

Eminem will release his sixth studio album Relapse this year.

    Seriously, if it was 50 Cent featuring Eminem and Dr. Dre, nobody would buy it, haha. It’ll be on Eminem’s next album though and it will be a bonus track on 50′s album. I like the song but i honestly did not expect it go #1.

    it’s not “My Name Is” or “Without Me” but I like it better than “Stan”. It may not be fire but it’s hot and it’s Em so I say let them roll on. You know it just gets better from here.
