Eminem has become the first person in the US to achieve the 1 million digital album sales mark. Eminem sailed past the 1 million mark thanks to his 2010 album Recovery. Eminem’s total digital album sales currently stands at around 1,001,000, making it a new record.
Steve Berman, the vice chairman of Interscope Records explained, "Recovery selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist. I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I'm delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey."
While Eminem is the first US artist to pass the 1 million mark, British artist Adele looks set to become the first artist in the UK to do so. Adele’s album 21 is currently pushing very close to the 1 million mark and is expected to pass it in the coming weeks.
