Eminemâ€™s Recovery album is still at the #1 slot on the Billboard chart. Marshall Mathers, the angst-filled rapper from Detroit, Michigan continues his success with his latest album.Â Eminem has had huge success with his latest release, which is still at the top of the charts four weeks after it debuted.
Perhaps the most popular track on the rapperâ€™s new record is the song â€œLove the Way You Lieâ€ which features R&B artist Rihanna.Â The mix of the two artists vocals are a very unique blend that make the song one that you find yourself listening to over and over again. According to Billboard News, the song has sold 352,000 digital downloads, up 12% from its previous total. It is the #1 digital download.
On Wednesday, Rihanna had her very first headlining show at the Staples Center.Â The guests were pleasantly shocked when she started singing the hook to the #1 song, â€œLove the Way you Lieâ€ and then out of nowhere Eminem came out on stage and started singing his part of the song. This hit was great for both artistâ€™s careers.
The rapper has had a tumultuous past, which was chronicled in the film â€œ8 Mile.â€Â The movie, featuring his good friend and late actress Brittany Murphy, was a hit that is still popular whenever it is aired on networks like VH1, MTV, and BET.
Despite the albumâ€™s success, it is expected to be de-throned when Rick Ross releases his new album, Teflon Don.
