Eminem jumped back into the game and landed himself at the top of the charts.
The rapper’s eighth studio album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which was released on November 5, has already climbed to the number one spot on the Billboard 200. The album sold more than 792,000 copies in its first week making it the second-highest debut sales week for any 2013 album.
“Unlike most people in the record industry, he’s consistently able to sell hundreds of thousands of records in one week,” Billboard’s associate director of charts/retail Keith Caulfield said. “We’re talking about an artist repeatedly doing this since his second album. It’s normal for him. And he can sell tracks. And he can sell out stadiums. How can you bottle what he does? It’s amazing.”
Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience still holds the number one spot for the biggest week, pulling in 968,000 copies sold back in March. And Drake’s Nothing Was the Same falls in at number 3, with 658,000 copies sold it it’s first week.
