Add another 750K to Em's total count (Somewhere around 32 Million). The final numbers aren’t in until tomorrow, but Hits Daily Double tally that Eminem’s Recovery has moved over 750,000 copies. If the figures hold up, the album becomes this year’s highest seller and Em’s fifth consecutive solo number one. Via RR
Eminem’s Recovery moved 741,000 units according to Billboard. This will be his 6th straight #1 album.
“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.
