Eminem's 'Not Afraid' Debuts at No. 1

  /  05.12.2010


Eminem is rocketing straight to the top. The rapper’s latest hit “Not Afraid” enters at No. 1 on this week’s chart, achieving a feat reserved for few.

The first single from Slim Shady’s new album Recovery becomes the 16th song to debut in the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in the chart’s nearly 52 years, reports Billboard. Released digitally last Monday (May 3), “Not Afraid” was downloaded 380,000 times, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The single, which holds the biggest sales week for a digital track this calendar year, is the first to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 since October 2009, when Britney Spears’ “3” claimed the position.

“Not Afraid” also becomes the third chart-topper of Eminem’s career, following “Lose Yourself” in 2002 and “Crack a Bottle,” which jumped 78-1 last year.
