Eminem rules Billboard Hot 200 with comeback album "Relapse". His effort has sold more than 608,000 copies since making its way out across United States on Tuesday, May 19. This achievement marks his fifth straight chart-topper after his 2004 set "Encore" grabbed the chart's top spot with 711,000 copies in its first week on sales.

Furthermore, the impressive selling point of Eminem's "Relapse" becomes the biggest sales week of the year for any album. Also, the Slim Shady himself is crowned the biggest selling hip-hop act in the SoundScan era (1991-present) considering that he has sold around 34 million units with his six albums.

Back on the chart, following Eminem's new album at number 2 is last week's champ Green Day's "21st Century Breakdown" which adds 166,000 copies after previously pulling in 215,000 units. This band's eight studio album overshadows Kenny Chesney's "Greatest Hits: Vol. 2", which manages to collect 89,000 copies since being released on the same day Eminem's "Relapse" was outed.

Other records landing on top ten Billboard Hot 200 are duet album between Method Man and Redman titled "Blackout 2", Dane Cook's solo project "ISolated INcident", and "Hannah Montana: The Movie" soundtrack by various artists, one of whom is the movie's star Miley Cyrus.
