Eminem’s Streak At #1 Ended By Avenged Sevenfold

(AllHipHop News) Eminem’s reign at #1 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart has come to an end, thanks to rock band Avenged Sevenfold. The group’s fifth studio album Nightmare dethroned Eminem’s album Recovery, which had spent 5 weeks at the top of the Billboard albums chart. The #1 debut is the highest ever for the band, whose album moved over 162,000 copies in its first week in stores. Ironically, Avenged Sevenfold’s album was produced by Mike Elizonda, who has collaborated with Eminem, 50 Cent and Dr. Dre on handful of tracks. Eminem’s Recovery will land at #2 with another 150,000 units sold, while Rick Ross’ Teflon Don moved another 65,000.
