Eminem Sets Digital Albums Sales Record

Eminem

Eminem has yet another accomplishment to add to the record books. The Detroit rapper has become the first artist ever to sell one million digital copies of an album in the U.S.

Recovery, the best-selling album of 2010, moves past the one million digital mark this week. The record-breaking feat comes only weeks after Em debuted at No. 1 with Hell: The Sequel, his collaborative EP with Royce Da 5’9”. This is the first time in the last five years an artist has landed two No. 1 albums within a one-year period.

Recovery selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist,” stated Interscope Records’ Vice Chairman Steve Berman. “I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I’m delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey.”

Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg also applauded his client. “We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of Recovery,” said Rosenberg. “Over the years we’ve made a concerted effort to engage Em’s online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding. Eminem made an amazing album with Recovery and the fans responded in record numbers.”

    With him and Lady GaGa breaking all these sales records I say Interscope is #Winning. By the way Lady GaGa’s “The Fame” previously held the title for highest digital sales.

    Basic line… Out of all her lines [Sidenote: yet another example of Big Sean's SUPER DUPER flow FAIL, if U wanna borrow anyone's flow, atleast do it right *]

    Em is legendary & all U gotta do is look at his track record.
    If he was on WATCH THE THRONE the game would just unanimously bow down all at once.

    What i have against Em is he sound the same on ALL HIS DAMN RECORDS!! Time to change it up! The rap on lighters could very well have been on love the way you lie (well lyrics are kinda diff) but the rythm of his rap is totally the same…

    [Reply]

    Drea Reply:

    @Trilla, if you think he sounds the same you need to get your ears checked. on welcome 2 hell he has a different sound then on a kiss or the reunion or lighters for that matter. Let me not even big on his different sound on almost every album he has put out.

    20 to 30 years from now, everyone is going to think us white folks created rap, just like rock and roll.

    Yeah eminem tell them whose boss.

    @Alicias certified homewrecka, haha funny, no matter what any white person does in rap everybody will know that black people created it. thats just a fact. 1000 years from now they will still remember the black people who created it, and besides that rap is dominated by black people, there are a select few white people who can rap, and eminem is one of them. but no matter what there will still be double the amount of black people rapping than white people thats just a fact.

    @isabella!, yeah blacks created Hip Hop, but the White boy showed them he can single handedly dominate it!

    This is so ridiculous…
    Rock’n’Roll is based from Blues [black people]… Eminem was influenced by BLACK rappers B-4 him… So hold your breath for 20 years…I’m not sure if Em even knows he’s white.

    @say what, true, but i am actually very surprised that there hasn’t been another artist before that has sold over a million albums on the internet, everybody usually downloads the albums off of itunes so i would of figured somebody would of sold a million by now off of digital sales either way, good job eminem.

    gaga will never top eminem in sales. He has 2 diamond plaques and is not a gimmick like she is. she is just a machine created by interscope. when she first started out she realized she wasnt getting the attention she wanted and nobody listened to her music. she was boring. so she created gaga so she can get famous and people can hear her music. But all ppl want is her to act crazy. You can see it in her videos. she trying to slowly and more slowly become more normal to see if her fans will still like her.

    @london in the house

    I almost never cuss especially online but…fuck you @london. Fuck you for not doing your research and fuck you for being a racist. You talk about em dissing black women then you go and say “look at this white boy?” cmon son you fuckin up. Yeah em did call an ex girlfriend a nigga bitch on a record…in 88. He was 16 years old and the girl straight dissed him by going with a rival from school right after they broke up. He shouldn’t have said and it was fucked up that he did but…he has apologized numerous times for something he did over 20 years ago

    @london house

    Em has spread nothing but love to the black community even though racist bitches like you keep dissing him and calling him a white boy. What makes me mad is that our own black rappers diss our beautiful black women all the damn time and bitches like you just sit there and bob your fuckin head like its all good. Em reps Detroit and gives back more than any other popular artist ever has to arguably the worst city in the damn nation which happens to have a large number of black folks. Little wayne says “Beautiful black woman bet that BITCH look better red” and i don’t hear shit…em says something racist in 88 and stupid assholes like you who know the mans not racist are still trying to deny this dope MC his fuckin due…so fuck you

    100% agree with Tony.
    Good valid points.

    Although some of the things Em has said about women (black or white, doesn’t matter) definitely shouldn’t be celebrated.

    But thats hip hop in general and I’m guessing these woman are still rushing out to buy these records…

    Congrats to Em.

    DO NOT piss me off&compare eminem2gaga.shes just an attention seekin wacko who tries 2 make for her crap music by wearin meat dresses and lookin ugly.& as for other artists;dnt get me wrong, i like weezy&fiddy&drake&kanye etc,but it gets kinda borin after all their songs are about gettin money,bitches,cars&coke.em connects with his fans in a way that NO OTHER ARTIST EVER can ever do, except tupac.& as for his actual raps, the wordplay, similes, metaphors,&rhymes,they r in a class of their own.he blows every other rapper into space.so, 2 all ppl who dnt think em is da gr8est, go beg bieber or gaga o whoever the fuck is the latest pop icon&shove dey faces up dey asses when dey clock how dickheaded dey r.
