Eminem was the first music artist to reach one million digital album sales with his album “Recovery” but soon after one week, British sensation Adele surpassed Eminem by becoming the second music artist to sell one million digital album sales with her album “21”.
Adele’s album “21” has sold 2.5 million copies in the U.S. and Eminem’s album “Recovery” has sold 3.9 million copies in the U.S. and counting for both artist. Worldwide sales for Adele’s album has sold 9 million copies and Eminem’s album has sold over 6 million copies. Both artist albums is still climbing the billboard charts and music sales (digital and CD).
