Eminems Did Really Good on 1st Week Sales

Eminem’s “Recovery” is going quite well. The rapper’s CD sold 741,000 in its first week of release, making it the best debut of the year. The figures were released by Eminem’s record label, Interscope, on Tuesday and confirmed by Nielsen SoundScan. It’s actually the best album debut since October 2008, when AC/DC’s “Black Ice” topped the charts with sales of 784,000. (Associated Press)
Last week, Em’s project was projected to sell as many as 750,000 copies.

Shady’s back, all right. Eminem’s sales continue to grow, and in our latest upward revision this morning, we’re now calling the Recovery number 700-750k. That means the album isn’t just a lock to top the first week of his previous release, Relapse, it’s on track to be the biggest debut since AC/DC’s Black Ice bowed with 784k back in 2008. With the weekend ahead, it’s now just a question of how high it can go. Here are the seedings for next week’s Top 15 * Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) 700-750k Drake (Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown) 150-160k
