Eminem continues his hot streak as he becomes the first artist ever to sell one million digital copies of an album in the U.S.
Just weeks after Bad Meets Evil's 'Hell : The Sequel' made it's debut at number 1, Slim's 'Recovery' album passes the digital platinum mark. The album was also the best selling album of 2010 and won a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
“Recovery selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist,” said Interscope Records’ Vice Chairman Steve Berman. “I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I’m delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey.”
Eminem's longtime manager Paul Rosenberg was just as pleased.
"We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of Recovery," he said. "Over the years we've made a concerted effort to engage Em's online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding. Eminem made an amazing album with Recovery and the fans responded in record numbers."
