Eminem Projected To Sell 750,000 First Week With "Recovery"

Although it's only been three days since its release, Billboard reports that Eminem's most recent studio album Recovery is expected to hit the 600,000 mark in sales in its first week. Some experts are even indicating that Recovery may even surpass sales for Em's 2009 comeback Relapse, which sold 608,000 copies in its debut week.
If projections prove correct, this will put Em well on track for his sixth consecutive No. 1 debut on Billboard and sixth overall No. 1 album. Only his major label debut The Slim Shady LP did not ascend to the No. 1 spot.
But with stiff competition from The Roots' How I Got Over and rock acts like Ozzy Osbourne and Miley Cyrus, will Marshall take the top prize? DX will keep you updated. (June 24)
UPDATE: Hits' Daily Double has updated projections, now believing that Recovery will sell more like 750,000 first week units. This would make the Detroit superstar's release the highest-selling debut Rap album since Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III, released just over two years ago.
The increase may come courtesy of additional Eminem interviews and performances in the last week, including appearing alongside Jay-Z on David Letterman's Late Show.
