Eminem's New CD Debuts Tops Charts

MAY 29, 2002


NEW YORK (AP) -- Eminem's new album made its debut at No. 1 on the album charts, according to figures released Wednesday.

'The Eminem Show,' featuring the song 'Without Me,' sold about 285,000 copies for the sales week ending Sunday -- the day it was officially made available for sale.

The album was originally set for release June 4, but it was bootlegged so heavily that his label, Interscope Records, moved the sale date up to Tuesday. Late last week, they took the unusual step of making the record available to retailers two days earlier, and the album reportedly was made available as early as Friday at some stores.

The disc is Eminem's follow-up to his Grammy-winning disc, 'The Marshall Mathers LP,' which sold a then unprecedented 1.7 million copies in its first week of release in 2000.

285,000 copies sold.  Did you know Eminem's bootlegged version was #2 on the 'most played' cd on the net.  True, and real funny cause this is the first time that has happened.  From now on, maybe artists should get smart and just sell copies of their CD for $3 to bootlegg vendors, which would sell for $5.  Not only would that make them alot more money, because most artist get paid $1 or less for each CD sold, but it would also take out the damn middle man.  I am glad it was bootlegged, at least this brings him back to his old days of underground music.
