The first week sales are in for Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and the results are very positive overall. The Detroit native sold approximately 779,000 units in its initial sales. This number makes it the second highest-selling album in 2013, below Justin Timberlake's 968,000 sold for The 20/20 Experience. However, that number is enough to make it the highest selling rap album of the year, supplanting Drake's Nothing Was The Same. Drake's third album moved 658,000 units.
Eminem had close to no competition this week when it came to sales. Finishing in second place this week was Celine Dion with her newest album, Loved Me Back To Life, which sold only 77,000 in its first week of sales.
