Eminem's Relapse Debuts at No. 1

Eminemis back on top. His latest album Relapse has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard with 608,000 copies sold in its first week alone. According to Billboard.com, it's the best debut since AC/DC's Black Ice reigned supreme with 784,000 copies in October of 2008.

Em’s previous studio album, 2004's Encore, sold 711,000 copies in its first week. Collectively, his six albums have sold 34 million in the United States, making him the biggest-selling hip-hop artist in the Nielsen SoundScan era.

We’re sure Eminem’s music video for “We Made You” helped create extra buzz around the new album. He may be controversial, but he knows how to sell records!

Relapse is available on iTunes now.
