Press Release"EMINEM SETS NEW RECORD WITH ONE MILLION IN DIGITAL ALBUMS SALES OF HIS 2010 ALBUM RECOVERY


CHART-TOPPING, GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING RECOVERY IS FIRST ALBUM TO EVER SELL ONE MILLION DIGITAL COPIES


July 5th, 2011 — Santa Monica, CA — Multi-platinum hip-hop artist Eminem has become the first artist ever to sell one million digital copies in the U.S. of an album as his 2010 release — the chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning Recovery — surges past the one million mark this week.


This record-setting career milestone comes just one week after the superstar artist landed at No. 1 with Hell: The Sequel, the release from Bad Meets Evil, Eminem’s collaboration with fellow Detroit native Royce Da 5’9.” This marks the first time in the last five years an artist has scored two No. 1 albums within a 12-month period.


“Recovery selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist,” says Interscope Records’ Vice Chairman Steve Berman. “I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I’m delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey.”


"We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of Recovery,” says Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg. “Over the years we've made a concerted effort to engage Em's online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding. Eminem made an amazing album with Recovery and the fans responded in record numbers."


Recovery debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart (Eminem’s sixth album to do so), as well on as the R&B/Hip-Hop and Rap Albums charts, marking the beginning of a triumphant comeback for the artist. The best-selling album of 2010 in the U.S. and the best-selling digital album of all-time, Recovery has now sold more than 5.7 million copies worldwide, propelled by its No. 1 singles “Not Afraid” (which earned Eminem a Grammy Award for “Best Rap Solo Performance” and two MTV Video Music Awards, and has sold more than 3.4 million downloads in the U.S.) and “Love The Way You Lie,” featuring Rihanna, which spent seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has sold more than five million downloads in the U.S. and 9.3 million downloads worldwide. “Love The Way You Lie” earned five Grammy Award nominations, including “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year,” and won Billboard Music, Soul Train, and People’s Choice awards.


In other Eminem news, Bad Meets Evil has released a new single from Hell: The Sequel, “Lighters,” featuring Bruno Mars, which follows on the debut single “Fast Lane.” The video for “Fast Lane” has racked up more than 8.2 million views on VEVO.

Last month, Eminem gave a critically hailed headlining performance at the 2011 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in front of 80,000 fans on June 11th. He will continue his series of explosive live shows in August, including headlining slots at Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 6th and the V Festival in the U.K. on August 20th and 21st.

I always thought it would have been Justin Bieber to sell 1 million digital copies.

It's a joke about Lady Gaga and most of her record sales from her last record were from a 99 cent deal on Amazon.

Good for him. Not a fan, but it's still a huge accomplishment.

No offense, but that's a really bad question. Particularly because this album is pretty damn overrated.

That out of the way, congrats to Eminem. This is a huge deal considering the guy is a decade removed from the peak of his popularity and quality. What's more, I can still bump a decent portion of this record after over a year.
