Beside scoring 2.1 million mark, 'Recovery' so far has also become the second-best seller behind Lady Antebellum's 'Need You Now'.
Eminem returns to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200 after sitting at the runner-up position since last two weeks. His latest rap album "Recovery" adds 133,000 copies, giving it 2.1 million mark in just eight weeks and replacing the former chart topper Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" on the top spot.
So far, the double-platinum album has become the chart's champion for six non-consecutive weeks.

Moreover, it becomes the second album to score two million threshold behind Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" which now has sold around 2.5 million.

In between the two, Blake Shelton's "All About Tonight" secures the sixth position in its opening week. The last new release which cracks the Top 10 is Mike Posner at No. 8 with "31 Minutes to Takeoff". "Kidz Bop 18" compilation and Avenged Sevenfold's "Nightmare" sit at No. 9 and 10 in respective order.
