    Without dissing Donald Trump, Believe and Arose as the singles instead of Walk On Water and Untouchable the album by now would have sold double that would easily be on 2.2 million now and also would have had double the first week sales too

    Most Eminem fans are big supporters of Donald Trump or come from families who are. He took the biggest decision of his career since cancelling Relapse 2 for Recovery by dissing Donald Trump on the Revival pre album Freestyle and on the Untouchable single and in lyrics on other songs on the album. It was the most ballsy decision he has made in his career

    Revival target audience was the Eminem fan base that like his albums such as The Eminem Show and Revival and songs such as Mockingbird/Lose Yourself/Headlights/When I'm Gone /Stronger Than I Was/Beautiful/Rock Bottom. For The female fan base he had heavily gained when releasing The Eminem Show album and in particularly songs from that album like Hailie's Song/Superman/Sing For The Moment/Soldier and a new generation of female fan base when he released Recovery and songs in particularly like Not Afraid/Space Bound/Love The Way You Lie/Going Through Changes.. For Eminem fans that like subject matter/introspect/emotion

    Song for song Revival quantity wise Revival has more deep/introspective/emotional songs than any Eminem album the whole album is that besides two songs Framed and Chloraseptic

    Isn't that bad? it has sold more in total than a lot of rappers entire discography sales combined. It's a platinum plaque, a number 1 charting album

    For it to sell that in 10 months is impressive but this is Eminem the God and King of record sales, popularity and hits so his standards are much higher due to his iconic status with record sales and mainstream success

    Believe and Arose>>>>>>>>>>any song on Kamikaze and 90% of Eminem songs in general

    Both are top 15 greatest ever Eminem songs

    Kamikaze is my least fave Eminem album only good song is Stepping Stones. It's a boring album that lacks replay value, lacks emotion and introspect especially considering it's a short album,

    Believe is Eminem at his finest 1 of the most catchy hooks and melodies ever made with a bangin a--- beat that slaps

    @NizzyDaGreat1 thank you for posting your thoughts, I never saw it that way. Revival is my new favorite post-hiatus album, I think, thanks to you.

    Yeah but those are not the only things that make a song or an album good. Especially in rap.. you can’t cancel g rap, daddy Kane and a whole generation of rap cause it may sound “rappity rap” to you

    As I always say, the album is doing fine just not in us. Probably because of the trump thing and single choices mainly. Walk on water is a classic but he should have gone with believe or river as the first single. Framed shouldn't have been a single, not arose but castle should have been a single, it has a catchy hook and flow. The song would have been twice as big as it is now if they just pushed it a little. People basically didn't listen to the songs in the second half in the album somehow. The stream numbers decreases as u go down in tracklist except songs like river and interludes.
    Revival is gonna be rated a lot better in like 5 6 years. I don't think it'll ever be better than kamikaze tho. Kamikaze is a classic. And it's too short and brief to get bored of listening to...

    Em's sales come from outside the US really, so even though the Trump thing would've stung him in the US, it wouldn't have had any real impact outside of it.
