Eminem’s “Recovery” Takes The #1 Spot

If you haven’t had a chance to cop Em’s new album “Recovery” I recommend you do. The production is sik, and there isn’t too many guest spots from other artist. That’s a good thing since most Hip-Hop/Rap albums nowadays usually have a ton of features on them. Here’s some of the numbers for the album according to Billboard.

“Recovery’s” debut week sales surpasses the first week of Eminem’s last set, “Relapse,” which began at No. 1 in 2009 with 608,000. It also beats the opening of 2005’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” which entered at No. 1 with 441,000 in 2005.

Eminem’s new album also wows digitally, as downloads made up 255,000 of its first week. That’s the second-biggest digital week for an album in history. Only Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends” notched a larger frame, when it debuted with 288,000 downloads in the summer of 2008.

“Recovery” is the hip-hop king’s sixth straight No. 1 debut — and sixth overall chart-topper. His only set to miss the top spot was his “Slim Shady LP” debut, which bowed and peaked at No. 2 in 1999. Among hip-hop acts with the most No. 1 albums, only Jay-Z has earned more, with 11.
