Eminem has established himself as hip-hop’s commercial juggernauts.
Em’s projected increase does not solidify him the year’s biggest first week, it does slide him into the top five alongside some impressive company. Drake’s Scorpion leads the pack with 732,000 units sold.
Travis’s Astroworld takes second place with 537,000 sold, much to the annoyance of Nicki Minaj. Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys chugged its way to third, with an impressive 461,000.
J Cole cemented himself as one of the game’s most prominent voices with KOD, clocking in at 461,000 units sold. Em finds himself projected at number five, with an expected 360,000 units sold, according to a Billboard report.
