Eminem has just become the first artist to sell 1 million digital copies in the US of an album — thanks to his 2010 release Recovery.
Em’s latest record-setting career milestone comes just one week after the artist landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Rap Chart with Hell: The Sequel, the release from Bad Meets Evil, the duo formed by Eminem and fellow Detroit native Royce Da 5’9. This marks the first time in the last five years an artist has scored two No. 1 albums within a 12-month period.
