    Eminem is the only male artist to sell as many albums in the last decade.

    Eminem is one of the most decorated artists of the last few generations, enjoying tremendous success as one of the greatest rappers to have ever held a microphone. While some have been unimpressed with his recent work, his earlier albums unsurprisingly still receive a lot of plays. As he celebrates a personal goal of reaching 10 years of sobriety, Em has been one of the most impactful artists of the last ten years, performing astoundingly well on the album charts throughout the years. New calculations confirm Marshall's influence and chart power, marking him as the only rapper in the top 5 best-selling albums of the last decade.

    Eminem's Recovery was given the impressive award after data was pulled from the highest-performing albums of the last ten years. It should come as no surprise to see Adele in the top 2 spots, garnering over 21 million pure album sales between her two full-lengths 21 and 25. With upwards of 4.8 million pure album sales for Recovery in the United States, Eminem sits at number 4 and is the only male artist in the top 5. Taylor Swift rounds out the list at both the 3 and 5 spots, which should also not be shocking given her reach in the pop music world.

    Shady has recently revealed that he has gotten back in the studio and there is potential for more team-ups between him and Royce da 5'9". As Eminem continues to achieve legendary feats, what do you think is next for the Detroit rapper?

    Pretty inaccurate. Recovery sold like 5 million copies in US till 2012. Right now it should be like 7-8 platinums certified.

    Time to apply those certifications, Paul..

    I mean most people bash it because not every song is a classic. It's worth the buy just for: Talkin 2 Myself, Going Through Changes, Not Afraid, Seduction, No Love, Space Bound, Almost Famous, Love the Way you Lie....

    Well it's his most relatable album and he was actually relevent between 2010 and 2012. So not surprising.

    Untitled is under-appreciated IMO. Happy to see you mention it as one of the good tracks on Recovery.

    Great.

    I'm sure he can jack off to another plaque and Paul can buy another Bentley to celebrate his wretched manipulation and twisting of one of the most authentic artists ever to one of the biggest cornball sell-outs in rap history now.

    Probably doesn't even matter to him that he hasn't made a classic for 16 years now, just as long as the sales keep coming. Good boy Marshy, give RiRi another call I'm sure fatty has the template ready to cut and paste.

    True. Except for Relapse and MMLP2 aka 2/3 of the other post-hiatus albums.
