    LMAO MooMooriahz last two albums sank like the titanic !!!!

    not to mention the fact that she can no longer sing live and loses breath these days just walking to the microphone, then she has the cheek to stand there and mime all her big whistle and belty notes.

  13. OHAI June 29, 2010

    It’s funny how Xtina fans can still talk about Mariah’s sales it’s kinda funny lol. Irrelavent vs Irrelavent.

    Amazing sales and people were talking about how no one was buying albums anymore because Christina flopped. KMT

  14. brandoise June 29, 2010

    Eminem could have had a million sales if it wasn’t for the leak two weeks before. Good job though!

  15. TheRealestMC June 29, 2010

    @OHAI HOW CAN XTINA STANS TALK ABOUT HER SALES?? SHE FLOPPED EVEN HARDER THAN MC. LOL

    BUT AGAIN CONGRATS TO EMINEM THIS IS HELPING THE OVERALL ALBUM SALES

  16. BENJAMIN June 30, 2010

    Not surprising, I knew he was gonna sell because he is “Eminem,” just like Kanye will sell because he is “Kanye.” I however didn’t, and won’t buy it, because I don’t agree with his personality. I mean seriously, for a rapper to fued with Mariah Carey( who despite where she is in her career now, has a 20 year reign in music with more top #1 singles than even the gloved one himself), he must have truly hit ROCK BOTTOM in self esteem. He can sell a record, but he is a lonely and lost soul.

    In my opinion, If he was blk with the exact same Music & voice he would not have sold this much, thats just how I feel.

    But I gotta admit, Im really starting to like that “not afraid” song, at 1st I saw it as just another played out Em song from a played out rapper but I love it now. I like his lrricall delivery in it, the way he articulates, the flow of the song. Very nice. Its like a MAN’S ANTHEM, we havent had one of them in how long??

    @ the EM Fans/stans- any other 2nd best song on his album that I should give a listen too?? not that Rhanna song, that ones just OK. But any other great songs on it??

  19. S*** June 30, 2010

    If he were BLK He would have sold 300K Max, sorry…

  20. Jay June 30, 2010

    Wow! These just shows that white people buy albums. and Black people don’t. That’s why their artists are failing.

  21. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) June 30, 2010

    @Jay,

    Black Americans you mean. Don’t generalize all people into that category. Quick question, you don’t think black Americans bought Eminem’s album?

  22. AlexanderTG June 30, 2010

    @S***
    True, but Em’ said that years ago in White America…
    “look at my sales, let’s do the math, if I was black, I would’ve sold half”
    and it isn’t his fault he was born white.

  23. S*** June 30, 2010

    ^^ Oh thats nice, I didnt know that. Atleast he knows this fact already & doesnt feel or brag about undeserved accomplishments. His usual High Sales simply stems from the fact that most Hip hop consumers are white (thats what I heard) & the fact that hes the ONLY White rapper (“that doesnt act or look Blk”) in Hip Hop.

    *goes to listen to White America”

  24. S*** June 30, 2010

    Not to put to much focus on his Race because he is a gifted rapper, not great but gifted nonetheless. I like his sillier material the most like “The name of my Band” & songs like that & also like a cpl of his more serious songs as well. I still wouldnt by his album though, I think most Rap albums are filled with more Filler than any other genre & Recovery will be no different.

  25. S*** June 30, 2010

    A huge part of being a rapper is your VOICE & the reason why I dont too much care for Em is because his voice is weak, his lyrics are great but his voice is weak so everything he says goes in one ear & out the other. The only exception for me (that ive heard) is on “not afraid” only becausetheres more conviction in his voice on this specific song.

  26. AlexanderTG June 30, 2010

    Don’t know if this has an effect on sales beyond me, but growing up as a half italian girl in the suburbs I didn’t really listen to much rap as it just didn’t seem to be something for me. Then I saw Em’ singing on a video and he drew me in because I guess I could relate to him pretty easily. Since then I’ve moved into the city in a more mixed area and I’ve got into loads of other rappers – so what I’m saying is that the black artists I have bought are really all down to Em’ to start with. Like I say I don’t know if that’s true for anyone else.

  27. jj June 30, 2010

    christina aguilera doesnt have many fans thats why
    miley cyrus has little kids fans cant afford to buy album

  28. LEEK June 30, 2010

    Em has been out since ’99 -’00, at some point the whole white rapper thing gets tired. Bubba Sparxxx is a white rapper from the rural south, shows his ass on every song and still not as known. Paul Wall, Yelawolf, & Asher Roth always come with heat but are not as well know as Em.

    Em has stated it was hardfor hom to get in the game because he was white, and now he’s a novelty because he’s white.

    And he outshined Jay on “Renegade”

  29. HOMIE June 30, 2010

    LOL eminem is amazing, tho i LOVE SLIM shady LP, and Marshall mathers lp, those 2 albums are god status. im not buying recovery but im getting another copy of slim sadhy lp tho
