Eminem's 'Recovery' Has Best Sales Week For Any Album Since 2008

Eminem's 'Recovery' Has Best Sales Week For Any Album Since 2008

The first week sales totales are in for Eminem's latest album, and unsurprisingly it sold a shit load of copies: 741,000 to be exact, or just under the 784,000 AC/DC sold in October 2008, the last time album sales got that high. It's also the biggest selling rap album since Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III.

 

In all, it was a good week for hip-hop Drake's Thank Me Later, last week's top seller, slipped to number two with 156,000 copies, breaking Drake over the 500,000 sold plateau. The Roots also hit the top ten, selling enough copies of How I Got Over to hit number six. [HITS

Yea, not really surprising, though that is a crap load of albums. Just glad to see the Roots crack the top 10.
