Eminem Projected to Sell 615K in Debut Week

The projections are in. According to the one-day sales, Eminem’s seventh solo studio album, Recovery, is expected to sell around 590,000-615,000 copies in its first week, reports

The album will also debut at the No. 1 position on The Billboard 200 charts making it Em’s sixth No. 1 album. Last year’s Relapse, which also came in at the top spot, had 2009’s highest selling first-week numbers for a hip-hop album with 608,000.

If the projections prove to be true, Em will be this year’s overall biggest first-week seller. Check next Wednesday (June 30) to get the official Nielsen SoundScan sales figures.
