Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” Becomes Rapper’s Best Selling Single


(AllHipHop News) Eminem’s single “Love The Way You Lie” with R&B singer Rihanna is officially his best-selling single of all time.

The RIAA recently certified “Love The Way You Lie” 5x platinum, meaning it has sold well over 5 million copies.

The track is taken from Eminem album Recovery, which has sold 4 million copies in the United States alone.

Eminem’s sales ability continues to be proven, as the single “I Need a Doctor” featuring Dr. Dre has been certified 2x platinum.

In related news, it has been announced that Eminem will join Lil Wayne on his tour of South Africa in December.

Prior to their outing in Africa, Lil Wayne and Eminem are performing in Australia.

Last night they shared the stage at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium, where Em gave his first performance in the country in over 10 years.

The pair will perform next in Sydney, Australia on December 4.

    If only we supported ours the way they support theirs.  Imagine the possibilities.  Em is dope though…can’t take that away from him.

    Proof that white people are the only ones buying records.

    Lady gaga,????????

    Fuk it i feel
    Like dre. Fuk rap yall can have it back.

    Bout to go find me my own great white hope,

    Somewhere out there. This a little white boy or girl.
    Just destined to be famous. And if she not its doesnt matter.

    Most of the white star has very little talent, its just they intrigue the masses,
    Cause whites hates that black dominate everything with ease.

    So when they get one of their own, that can rise to the front. In fields that are dominated by us,

    They go HAM when it comes to supporting them….

    Trailers parks USA here i come. Lol

    Just look at blue eye soul singer. Most are just average.

    pretty soon hip -hop is going to be luke rock n roll.

    Something we started, but no longer dominate.

    Russell & def jam need to take some blame 4 this as well.

    When they made run dmc work with aero smith they did it only 4 the money.
    Not to mention, russell need funds to supply that candy habit
    He was on. Same thing with the beastie boys.

    They were talented at all. They just were being use by russell
    And rick to get money from a demographic, that wouldnt support them
    Or a black label, unless it was promoting white people.

    He was the first sell out/ cross over house negroe in my opinion.

    Its tricky, its tricky…….

  • NO WONDER DRE ISN’T PUTTING OUT DETOX… LOL… HE GETS A PIECE OF EVERYTHING EM SELLS AND THAT “I NEED A DOCTOR” TRACK IS DRE’S TRACK SO THAT 2 TIMES PLATINUM ACTUALLY GOES UNDER HIS BELT EVEN THOUGH IT’S ONLY EM SPITTING ON THE TRACK…. I GUESS WHEN YOU HAVE THAT MUCH SUCCES WITH OUT BEING ON “FRONT STREET” YOU DON’T HAVE TO PUT ALBUMS OUT!

  • WoW!
    Congratz!

  • Actually theyre performing tonight the 2nd of december (which is your 1st) and again on the 4th..can wait!!!

  • R_REAL_TALK

  • Don’t really like the race card. I don’t really play it cause it’s weak. Fact is “White” people BUY most records. Does not mean anything in regards to Eminem’s sales. Remember this guy in a way is what “Tiger Woods” to Golf, but to Hip-Hop. He’s one of the greatest, he’s never been “out-rapped” on a feature, not even with Jay and he constantly drops fire even if you don’t like it. Encore still had at least 4-5 bangers on it and Relapse had lyricism galore to it if you look past the “experimental” accent he laced it with. Dude’s career and moves are amazing. From “Infinite” to “8 Mile” and winning an Oscar and Grammys to Recovery.

      Actually, it means everything in regards to his sales. The majority of people who buy eminem albums don’t buy hip hop albums on the regular. It would be different if those buyers where hip hop fans, but they only buy hip hop albums when it’s eminem and maybe a few others. Their primary music choice is not hip hop…Just to be clear, I’m not knocking this, just calling it how I see it. As for white people buying albums, this is true. Black people need to understand as well, that white people make up over 70% of the population. So, it’s a given that white people are going to buy more hip hop than black people. Sometimes, I think black and brown people hang around each other so much that we don’t realize how out numbered we are compared to white people…

      I don’t like using the race card either but recovery was mediocre @ best… We all know that. He is every white dudes hope and soccer moms buy his shit 2 try n b the cool mom. White people buy albums and that’s most of his fan base. I can’t remember the last time I heard some1 driving around listening 2 his album. I bought it n I can’t remember the last time I even looked @ the cover… Lol!

      P.S. he is still 1 of the best 2 ever do it!!!!

    • Nice. A little convo with no e-thuggin’, no hating or talking negative to each other. Just a few hip-hop heads discussing. S/O to you.. Jaymalls amd CGENERAL.

    Thank Rihanna @PhreshBeatz365

  • You cant hate on it dude isnt the same monster he use to be but even at half speed he kills the rest of the mainstream, I mean, Who is his competition, Young Money, Rick Ross??

    I dont really mess with Em heavy like that anymore tho, he went a lil too far into the mainstream, even tho he still has it when he wants to use it (Go listen to “Going Through Changes” and tell me dude aint still got that passion under the surface)

    Best thing i give Em props for now is giving Slaughterhouse a chance, real talk, no other label would give a group with 4 Lyrical Beasts who are all in their early 30’s another shot at the limelight, and i respect that to no end

  • khaosol.com

    the jews over at interscope kepping his numbers inflated, just like lil wayne team inflate his numbers. nobody is buying an individual single this is the internet age.

    • People buy more singles now then ever thanks to the itunes store, what are you talking about fool, lol, single sales replaced album sales, why buy an album you dont want when a .99 cent click of the itunes store gives you the hit is how most people see it
