Eminem’s new album Music to Be Murdered By has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and in doing so Shady has passed Kanye West by becoming the artistes with the most no. 1.
Eminem’s new album pushed 279,000 equivalent album units in its first week out, reports Billboard.
That included an impressive 117,000 in traditional album sales. Shady now owns 10 consecutive No. 1 albums, a new record.
This includes every solo album release from the Detroit rapper dating back to 2000s The Marshall Mathers LP.
When Kanye, who is planning a Sunday Service Tour, released his chart-topping Jesus Is King album last October, he tied Eminem for the then-record with nine. That run includes all of West’s albums dating back to Late Registration.
Music to Be Murdered By, which Em dedicated to the late Juice Wrld, features 20 songs and has guest appearances from Juice Wrld, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Ed Sheeran, Young M.A, Skylar Grey, Don Toliver, Anderson Paak, Royce 5’9″ and more.
