This week Eminem’s new album “Recovery” debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts. According to Soundscan, the album sold over 753,000 copies in its first week and also made history by having the second biggest digital download week for an album ever.  Recovery is Eminem’s seventh album release and his sixth debut at number 1. Its good to see Em do numbers like this in this type of economy.

I guess Jay-Z was right when he said “Only Dudes moving units is Em, Pimp Juice and Us”
