    The chances are this will be the lowest selling album he has ever made in an era now where streaming is included as apart of sales an advantage he didn't have when he was selling 3 million with ease after a month and a half of an album being released. Selling over 1 million first week with ease

    On top of the low sales u have a 62/100 Metacritic rating of the album which is poor


    U know what is funny @EminemBase on this album he had something for everybody emotional/personal songs like Stepping Stones/Nice Guy/Fall/Good Guy. Ringer/Greatest/Lucky You/Not Alike for those that like rappity rap or technical lyrical rap just spitting for the sake of spitting or whatever term u wanna use. Him singing on some songs on the album, The typical female singer featuring on the hook on two songs Jessie Reyez that he been doing since 2010.

    It's all about streaming now.

    Physical copies of albums are slowly dying out.

    This plus the new rules for determining sales means numbers like that probably won't be seen for a lil

    In the United States, Kamikaze opened at number one on the Billboard 200 with 434,000 album-equivalent units,[50] consisting of 252,000 traditional album sales as well as 225 million streams, giving Eminem his largest amount of streams within a week.[51] It became his ninth consecutive number-one album in the country, tying him with Garth Brooks and The Rolling Stones for fifth-most entries to top the chart, and had the year's third-highest first-week sales in the US as well as the fourth-highest overall opening.[52] He also topped the Artist 100 chart due to album sales and song streams.[53] The album dropped one place to number two in its second week behind Paul McCartney's Egypt Station, earning an additional 136,000 album-equivalent units.[54] All eleven songs entered the Billboard Hot 100,[55] with "Lucky You" and "The Ringer" reaching numbers six and eight on the chart.[56] He is the fifth artist to debut two songs in its top 10 simultaneously.[57]

    The album also entered atop the UK Albums Chart on September 7 with first week sales of 55,000 album equivalent units, including 30,000 album-equivalent streams, making Kamikaze the United Kingdom's fifth-most streamed album in an opening week.[58][59] As a result, Eminem surpassed Led Zeppelin and ABBA for the most consecutive albums to reach the nation's summit,[58] with nine.[60] It was also the top album in Scotland.[61] The following week, the album retained the top spot, with 51% of its consumption coming from streams[62] and garnered 29,000 units for the third week to stay at number one.[63] It managed to stay atop the charts for four weeks.[64]

    It additionally debuted at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart, giving Eminem his ninth number-one album in Australia[65] (where it stayed for four weeks)[66] and the Canadian Albums Chart, becoming Eminem's 10th number-one album in Canada after debuting with 44,000 album-equivalent units.[67] Other international charts that it topped include Austria,[68] Belgium (Flanders only;[69] it reached third in Wallonia[70]), the Czech Republic,[71] Denmark, Finland,[72] Ireland,[73]Italy,[74] the Netherlands,[75] New Zealand,[76]Norway,[77] Sweden,[78] and Switzerland;[79] it retained top spot in Ireland the following[80]two weeks.[81] Kamikaze debuted at sixth in France, fourth in Germany,[71] tenth in Greece, eighth in Hungary, third in Poland, and fifteenth in Spain;[82] after one week, it rose to second in Germany, and twelfth in Spain.

    On streaming music service Spotify, five tracks from Kamikaze were in the top 10 of the week of September 4, including the top two spots.[12] At the iTunes Store, three songs were in the top ten and Kamikaze topped the album charts in the first week of release.[83]The album had the fifth-strongest opening week for streaming in the United Kingdom with 30,000 equivalent units.[84] "Lucky You" represents the first time that Eminem has topped the Streaming Songs Chart from Billboard.[85]


    PLUS, think of the views the videos for Venom, Fall, Lucky You and Killshot earned in a short space. All this from a surprise album with no promotion building up to it is FAR from being a flop

    This thread is wrong and prolly got the numbers on Eminem Discography page via wiki. They haven't updated pure sales there nor sps. It's at 400K+ Pure and 830K SPS in the US.
