The big story/takeaway from this week’s sales are that even if you are in jail, as long as you have a MP3 player, you have the ability to have a #2 album. Gucci Mane also has a great debut (with a GREAT album) at #4 selling over 60k. Eminem stays strong at #5 and has sold over 2.7 million units.
My friend “Iceman” actually told me that Lady Antebellum would outsell Eminem this year; looks like he has some egg on his face after Em passed Lady A last week and now leads by 60k or so.
A few other notable debuts; Eric Clapton (6), the Social Network soundtrack (20), Soundgarden (26), and of course our man Cube (22).
