Eminem Becomes First Artist Ever To Sell One Million Digital Copies Of An Album In The U.S

Take that Lady Gaga. Eminem has become the first artist ever to sell one million digital copies in the U.S. of an album as his 2010 release — the chart-topping, Grammy Award-winning Recovery — surges past the one million mark this week. This record-setting career milestone comes just one week after the superstar artist landed at No. 1 with Hell: The Sequel, the release from Bad Meets Evil, Eminem’s collaboration with 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.

In other Eminem news, Bad Meets Evil has released a new single from Hell: The Sequel, “Lighters,” featuring Bruno Mars, which follows on the debut single “Fast Lane.”
