Eminem’s Grammy-Winning Album “Recovery” Goes 4x Platinum


(AllHipHop News) 2011’s Grammy Award-winning album by Eminem, Recovery, was officially certified 4x platinum yesterday (February 2).

Recovery exploded on the charts in June of 2010 when it sold over 750,000 copies in its first week.

The album, which was executive produced by Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Paul Rosenberg, contained a wide range of tracks that made their way across both Urban and Pop radio for most of 2010 and 2011 off of the sound and success of the hit singles “Not Afraid,” the Rihanna-assisted “Love The Way You Lie,” and “No Love” which featured Lil Wayne.

In 2011, Eminem released Hell: The Sequel, a collaborative album between himself and Royce Da 5’9″. The two went under the monikers of Bad and Evil for the album, playing off of their acclaimed song from Em’s 1999 album The Slim Shady LP, which featured Royce on the song “Bad Meets Evil,” for which the newly released album was named.

Eminem is currently helping to put some finishing touches on the upcoming Slaughterhouse album, which is scheduled for release this May, as well as his own currently untitled ninth studio album.

    Record industry is really doing bad when it takes almost two years for an album to go 4x platinum.  Rewind ten years ago, going platinum for a big time artist would take two days tops
