Eminem Back at No. 1, ‘Recovery’ Goes Double Platinum

Eminem

Eminem has a lot to be thankful for this summer. The Detroit rapper reclaimed his spot atop the Billboard 200 albums chart this week with his seventh studio effort Recovery.

The disc, initially released in June, also achieves its eighth consecutive week of selling at least 100,000 units, bringing its grand total to a whopping 2.1 million copies. As a result of the surge in sales, Slim Shady’s latest album earns double platinum status.

To date, Recovery is the second best-selling album of 2010 behind Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now (2.5 million). Besides his album accolades, Em’s Rihanna-assisted single “Love the Way You Lie” also moves into the No. 1 position on the Digital Songs chart.

At this point last year, no albums had sold more than two million units, according to Billboard. Six have reached the million mark this year, including Usher’s Raymond v. Raymond, which went platinum this week after selling an additional 15,000 copies.
