    It was always going to flop lol

    NOBODY is interested in a greatest hits 2 by Eminem in 2022. His stocks already fell after revival and the promo/marketing was shocking as always.

    I would be surprised if his next project sells 200k first week in the USA.

    Then again, he’s never active or relevant so you can’t expect kids to be listening to him

    Em only doing 40-50k isn’t just the marketing. Aside from Side B, every feature he’s done and single he’s put out has been boring. Monotone delivery on okay songs with not much replay value. I find myself less and less interested in new songs and I’m a huge Em fan. I can’t imagine how the average listener feels. He’s not doing anything to wow anybody

    Bad Bunny makes the most terrible and generic music ever. Why would I care if he is number 1 or not? Doesn’t change the fact he is dogshit.

    lol I just like this album, I thought the last one everyone was praising was wack. Watch your man though, he seems to be interested :')

    It is funny watching him outsell every US artist though, but the album deserves it :kanye3:

    Told ya he would outsell Em with his old album. I also said Beyonce's second week could be a problem. You still our next prophet though. I'm just a noob.

    Going into this, I felt like there was a possibility CC2 could helped people reappraise the legacy of his more recent music.

    Even if Em's last several albums were uneven and had their share of wack songs, if he could compile the best few tracks of each album, it would be a rock-solid project. Right?

    But CC2's tracklist is uneven too...

    Obviously em is not gonna sell much in US anymore unless he delivers a very popular single or 2 by chance but I don't see that happening easily. I'm not sure he has any interest in that area neither... But if only 40k people are really interested in collecting your stuff then I'm not sure if it makes sense to even bother spending money on that product at all...

    Actually he does have some nice ones but he always misses to promote them and push them as singles. Nobody would listen to Darkness or Wow in this age. Farewell was like that popular latino reggeaton type of rap song (close to it beatwise) that could have done better with promo, Lock It Up was the same. Maybe if he just make huge as movie like video for Castle & Arose those two might have been something different. Believe had some potential. He did the same with Beautiful Pain too, that would have been bigger than Berzerk if it was released as a single and pushed. There are many songs like that he completely missed out on, specially on Side B. He released Killer remix single which was awful while the actual track was something that everybody can vibe to and bump in the car or something. Terrible single choices specially since Revival. I'd release completely different songs for Revival as singles and maybe could have done remix for Walk On Water with a bumping beat. People don't care about sad, emotional songs, they just wanna hear the dance tunes etc.

    He makes some questionable decisions but singles like River, Godzilla or Gnat were good singles. Some of the others were just bad choices for a first single like Darkness or WOW, but not bad singles.

    Terrible for first singles, not good for singles. Wow needed a beat, Darkness was not catchy by any means. It was going to flop anyway, and it did. River was good because Ed had a catchy hook on it (I doNt like that song but at least it appeals to some people) Walk On Water had Beyonce but the hook was not really catchy, those slow, soulful hooks won't get streams unless it's Adele or something. Beyonce's last album didn't even had any slow paced soulful singing on it lol. Gnat was a modern day rap single. I appreciate that but unfortunately it wasn't really successful neither, still I good choice compared to many terrible ones, yet I still feel like Side B had songs with more potential. Godzilla is perfect post 2020 Em single. But I'm hoping for more Lock It Up type of s--- as singles in the future...

    Track with Beyoncé could have had a chance if we had seen them together shooting the video, performing it and all that, but I think Beyoncé was in the middle of a break to have her younger kids.

    It's like when 50 released My Life but couldn't get Em to perform it with him.

    Nah, that's Eminem doing the same shady tactic as Juice's label. If you use the 'original' song you could use those streams to give a bump to your sales. Lil Bibby did the same with Fighting Demons Deluxe...

    Album is just lazy...I understand you want to call it "greatest hits"...dont just put all commercial tracks over the years.

    Make the the album filled with tracks that received well to the fans that werent necessarily "hits" or played on the radio.

    Album would have been pushed/sold more, if he added more unreleased tracks. Who is going to listen to the same tracks, they already have been listening to?

    Or, logon to Apple Music or Spotify, and make your own track list. Then change the album art to CC2. There, done. Just shows why a greatest hits record in the streaming era is meaningless.

    Wish they kept the Adderall version. I like variants. Clean tracks back in the day were annoying, but I always used to get entertainment from how goofy some of the replacement lines were.

    "He's upstairs naked with a weapon drawn!"

    "He's upstairs wrestling with Elton John!"

    I love how the My Fault pizza mix recontextualises the whole song as an allergy situation versus an OD
