Eminem's Recovery landed at Number One on the Billboard Top 200 sales chart this week, selling 741,000 copies, which is the largest sales week since October 2008, when AC/DC sold 784,000 copies of Black Ice.
The record is Em's sixth straight debut at Number One and his sixth album to debut at the top. Only Jay-Z has more numero unos; he has 11.
Recovery also bests his last album, Relapse, which bowed at Number One with 608,000 copies. It proves that music fans, casual and passionate, still love Marshall Mathers. It doesn't hurt that "Not Afraid" and "Won't Back Down" are some of his best songs in years.
