Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 30, 2010 by SOBs

Sorry Drake. Looks like Eminem is murdering everything else in his path -sales wise that is. According to MTV.com, his latest effort, ‘Recovery,’ sold 741,000 in it’s first week alone. We haven’t seen sales numbers like since NSync reigned the music charts – and that was a pretty dark time for all of us. ‘Recovery’ marks Eminem’s 6th, yes 6th, consecutive #1 album. Crazy! Check out the full article here

Considering the fact that the album already leaked a few weeks early, these numbers are pretty incredible. Guess Eminem’s got a whole lot of support backing his latest effort. Don’t feel too sorry for Drake, his reign may have been short lived but we’re sure it was sweet while it lasted.
