| Filed under: Music MinuteEminem

After last weeks detour to make room for Arcade Fire, Eminem is back at the #1 spot atop the Billboard 200 albums chart.

To date, his disc Recovery has sold 2.1 million strong and not since Susan Boyle has an artist spent that may weeks in the top spot. Eminem is also the only other artist, behind Lady Antebellum, to cross the double platinum line this year.

Feeling that swell of pride, Em?!

    Can you say, Thanks Riana?

    Re: B0Nnay – Actually Rihanna should be thanking Eminem. He is selling way better than she is. She has a hit BECAUSE of him.

    Eminem does NOT need the untalented likes of Riri to get back on top. The man writes his OWN sick lyrics and is a TRUE artist, his lyrics move people because they come from a place of torture.

    Rihanna, though she's been through domestic abuse, cannot capitalize it into amazing, moving art the way that Em does.

    Damn whippersnappers.

    is anyone really shocked?..i mean…come on..this was clearly expected.

    Eminem, was, and always has been the man. Lil' Wayne, doesn't hold a candle to him. Kanye is artsy, edgy, but Eminem is effin' amazing. Very few rappers can compare, def not anyone as of late.



  8. 8

    Go, Detroit.



  9. 9

    It is very good. I just can't get enough of it. The dumbass critics are dissing the songs I like the most. "So bad" and "Seduction" LOL - they don't know anything about that type of music so can't judge it.

    Re: B0Nnay – your joking right? all rihanna did was the chorus…she didnt have a hand in writing or producing. she should be thanking him, he just helped her career last a little longer.

    Re: B0Nnay – are u serious? Eminem is the best selling artist of the decade …and best selling rapper of all time..it wasn't because of rihanna!eminems fanbase grew up with him…the only surprising thing is that he went double plat in 8 weeks AT This time and age!noone else does that these days..eminem can sell 3.7M in one month back in the days..oh and his album Marshall Mathers lp is the fastest selling solo album in history a simple google search of his wikipedia page can prove that .or ig u have a Guinness book of records 2002 it's there

    #1 or not at all, this doesn't define him or his instrinsic worth.



  16. 16

    All of his albums have the same sound and the old topic.
    I'm bored of him already.



  17. 17

    Damn, so glad Eminem is back….one of the rare music artists, rapers, that actually DOES deserve respect!!!!

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer

    Lol!!! His poop is more exciting than anything you've done your entire life…

    Jealous people are really pathetic.



  19. 19

    boring …. he is old now,he disrespects artist who are a millions times better than him…

    This is the first CD I have bought since his last CD came out! It is the only one worth buying. I am not going to waste my money on Ke$ha, GagGag or any of the other crappy "artists" that are out right now! His numbers show that people are sick of the "music" we have all been subjected to, so when an actually TALENTED artist puts out a phenomenal CD, that is what everyone is going to buy! SO for all you haters saying he is washed up or he sucks, it looks like you should be eating your words, b/c he is on top of his game right now! I'm sure if you kiss his feet he would forgive you!

    Generally, I do not like rap…But I have always liked Eminem. He's got a lot of natural talent…and this is thanks to his own hard work and not because he happened to have another well-known singer join him on one of his newest hit songs. Yes, Rihanna does lend something great to Love the Way you Lie…but let's face it…the song would have shined even without her. Great song…he deserves the recognition.

    If you had to choose between physical abuse and psychological abuse, within a relationship, with someone you whom you loved, which one would you tolerate the longest?

    I, personally, have been in both and would hands down put up with psychological abuse over physical. I am not at all condoning any form of abuse, let that be known. But I ask because… I dunno, haven't you noticed a trend in social issues lately with couples in the media? Regardless of class, status or financial bracket stars fall into the same holes that man has always fallin' into, I guess that's why they call them manholes. (sorry I had too)

    Seriously, Love the Way You Lie has opened my eyes to the way people rate abuse, as if one was worst than the other, they all hurt. Anyway that is my truth.

    Rhianna and Eminem both have high class, quality talent, yet ghetto glam styles in their emotional affairs it makes me realize that there are more people out there like me making it big and still effin' up. lol But learning along the way.
    Balance!
    Love and hugs
