FOURTH BEST SALES OF 2018
Eminem dropped Kamikaze without any promotion in August. Eminem surprised fans with an album that quickly gained buzz from tracks like”Greatest” and “Fall,” calling out artists by name.
Kamikaze sold 434,000 total copies, including 252,000 digital-only copies, landing Eminem his 9th number one album surpassing the Beatles, Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, and Elvis Presley.
Drake’s Scorpion, Travis Scott’s Astroworld and Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentley’s album were the only albums to surpass Eminem’s opening week numbers so far in 2018.
