Eminem’s Relapse Tops the Billboard 200

    Congrats to Prefix user/man about town Al for winning our bragging-rights contest to predict the sales of Eminem’s Relapse (and apologies to those who guessed in the billions): Relapse moved 608,000 copies in its first week, cruising to an easy finish at the top of the Billboard 200. Relapse sold disappointingly compared to Eminem’s last effort, Encore, which moved 711,000 copies in its first three days alone. But the 608,000 sales tally is more than the 500,000 predicted towards the end of last week.

     

    Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown, last week’s number one, finished at number two with 166,000 copies sold. For the rest of the Top Ten, head over to Billboard
