Eminem's new album, The Marshall Mathers LP Two, will debut at number-one on the Billboard 200 chart with the second-largest sales week of the year. It moved 792,000 copies in its first week out, according to the latest SoundScan figures.
The hype Drake brought with Nothing Was the Same has calmed down a bit, but it's still strong at number-seven in its seventh week. And Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience Complete -- which includes both volumes of the project -- holds it down in at number-15.
Em is also riding on his own coattails. The original Marshal Mathers LP is at number-30 on sales of 10,000 copies. Two weeks ago, it was barely on the chart at number-175.
MY 2 CENTS:
- Em sure knows how to get people to spend their money on his music. How does he do it?
- Miley's album Bangerz is still charting -- you go girl!
- You have to wonder how many people bought the first Marshall Mathers LP thinking it was the new one.
