Eminem Holds onto No. 1 Spot for 2nd Week in a Row
Eminem continues his phenomenal reign on top of The Billboard 200 sales charts this week, nabbing the No. 1 spot for the second time in two weeks.
Since Recovery debuted on the charts nine weeks ago, it has only faltered to the No. 2 position once, losing to the Arcade Fire. This go-round, Em earned the top spot after selling 116,400 units in the last seven days. Overall Recovery has 2,229,400 units sold.
Ten spots down at No. 11 is Rick Ross’s latest album, Teflon Don. The Miami Boss racked up an additional 23,700 in sales this week, bringing his five week-total to 332,000. Directly below Rozay at No. 12 is Drake. The Young Money star failed to reach platinum status yet, but he’s on track to pick up the plaque next week. Drizzy pulled in 23,400 in sales this week, making his 10-week tally stand at 993,500.
Rounding out the Top 40 is B.o.B and Bun B. Both The Adventures of Bobby Ray (No. 34) and Trill O.G. (No. 35) earned 11,300 in sales this week. The ATLien’s overall stats now stand at 357,300, while the UGK rapper’s numbers equal 68,200. —Elan Mancini
