Eminem’s “Recovery,” released on June 21, is headed for the top spot next week with a very large sum. Industry sources estimate the album will rack up the biggest sales week of the year, as the set could exceed 600,000 copies by week’s end on Sunday, June 27.
There’s even the chance it could surpass the 608,000 that Eminem last set, “Relapse,” started with last year.
“Recovery” is on track to be Eminem’s sixth straight No. 1 debut and sixth overall No. 1. His only album to miss the top spot was his “Slim Shady LP” debut, which bowed and peaked at No. 2 in 1999. (Billboard)
