Eminem’s new album Kamikaze opened at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart this week with sales of 434k, which was almost 150k more than what his LP Revival did.
The album has been very clearly received much better than the last one, the results of which will show in the second week as well. HDD projects that the rap-heavy Kamikaze will spend another week at the top spot with sales of over 125k. Apart from the majorly positive reception of the set, the physical copies have hit stores this week too which will help boost the figures.
Earlier this week, Eminem’s producer and friend Mr. Porter hinted that Shady will have a response coming at Joe Budden, Machine Gun Kelly and the rest soon.
