In the week of July 4th to July 10th, Eminem made music history by selling over 1 million digital albums (his last album Recovery, to be exact). Eminem is the first artist to reach this number of digital ALBUM downloads (many artists have sold this many single songs)
But, Slim Shady won’t be lonely at the top for long. Who is slated to join him, next? Our very own fan-favorite and bold soul singer, Adele! Adele has edged out Lady Gaga, recently, with 992,000 digital copies of her hit album, 21. She did this in just NINETEEN weeks of sales. Phew, that was a lot of numbers. Did you follow all that? Because it kind of confused us!
This also means that Adele is going to set the record as the first FEMALE artist to sell one million digital album copies. Not too shabby, if we do say so ourselves! 🙂
