    So, does this fuck up first week sales?

  • Pingback: DaShadySpot.com

  • bonbon

    who cares about sales. damn. just buy it, enjoy it or don’t enjoy it. have you ever heard of that?

  • WHY

    why should this fuck up the 1st week sales??

  • Post no billz

    They shoulda pushed it up a week.. What differance is one fuckin day gonna make.. Alot of people already got the whole fuckin thing..

  • Ya

    Pushin up a day only makes sense on a long wknd… Wut do they gain out of this? I ain’t no expert, but first week numbers r great for advertisin of an album, and while u’ll get alot of fans who get it on the 1st day, it won’t b enuff to beat drake… Em mite not even get #1 on billboard at all cuz of this move.. Ah well, who gives a fuck I guess

  • Pat

    Can someone please explain how releasing it on a Monday fucks up the sales?

  • Mack attack

    I’m from Ireland, I’ve had the downloaded version a week now but still copin it. Every eminem album debuts at number one here , but bar hip hop heads no one knows who gucci, drake, or lil Wayne is! Ems set to headline oxygen festival next month to 100,000 ..

  • LIL MAN

    @YA
    idk wat u talking about but em gon beat drake remeber dake is 2morro and em nex week! em gon have da advantage on da 2nd 3rd even 4th week of sales!
    n fuck billboard.. im lookn forward album of the year!

  • WHY

    are the monday sales counted to the previous week???

  • LIL MAN

    no it wouldnt make senc if dey put album sales of em on supposly last day of da week before it would look weird! i think its gon be monday threw monday instead of da old skoo tues threw tuesday

  • Ya

    @ppl askin why it fucks up 1st week sales, 1st week is from Tuesday to Monday. So em’s 1st week sales = monday. Drakes 1st week sales = tuesday to Monday

  • *Hennessey*

    I can think of only one reason as to why they would release it one day early for a short week sale

    My speculation is that they are so confident in pre-order sales that they are sure they will beat Drakes first week sales

  • so what!

    Why are fans so obsessed about first week sells!?

  • bobby jackson

    eminem gonna sell more records than drake!

  • Blo

    Damn for all people so u can quit asking or people like Ya who think they know what they’re talking about….sales are tracked from Monday to Sunday…damn everybody is a know it all on these message boards but don’t know shit…

    the album is 1 of his best but devo not the best

    ^

    It was pretty even IMO. Wayne always says some deep ass shit, and when his flow picked up thats when his verse got better. Em said some deep shit too at points, but his flow was hot throughout the whole song. Either way, they make some good ass music together…and Em seems to respect Wayne ALOT. I can see another Wayne and Em collab on C4.

    Em should collab with Kanye, thats about the only HipHop heavy hitter he hasnt really fucked with like that aside from forever but I dont count that.

    Jay, Wayne (2x), T.I, just make a song with Kanye….that shit would be DOPE.

  • E-Hustle

    I was wondering why when I just pre-ordered it on iTunes it said it will be available on the 21st and not the 22nd. Now I know!
    But peep this, as of this posting I sending the Deluxe version of Recovery is at #2 on the entire albums list (#1 on Rap/Hip Hop top 10) and the regular version of Recovery is #8 on the entire music list.
    Like someone else said, I can only see them doing this because the demand has to be high as fuck for them to only have 1 day sales.
    I will personally account for 4 copies sold. I got the Deluxe pre-ordered on iTunes, I am copping both covers on the actual CD at bestbuy on Monday and the LP Record.
    Just have to make sure I go to the right Bestbuy store because only a select few sell the Records. I did this same shit for Relapse because I am loyal to this muvafucka. And I am on Unemployment Benefits now. So how bout that for support.
    But that would be ill ass fuck if his 1 day sales smashed Drake. OMG! That shit would have me busting a nut, no homo! LOL!

  • Pretty Toni

    E- Hustle you a dumb ass nigger, jobless ass faggot. His monday starts a new week of sales. Why don’t you go get a fuckin job you piece of shit. Buying 4 albums with your mamas food stamps

  • Gordon B.

    People only release albums on Mondays these days because iTunes add new music on Tuesdays so it helps first week sales if the album is on iTunes all 7 days now it’s there for 6 for the first week sales, don’t think it makes much a difference to Em how much he sells first and Interscope will get the same money just 1 day later from iTunes buyers so doesn’t really matter.

  • BLambo

    thats tight, i get to pick it up on my bday now.. damn i must be special

  • E-Hustle

    @Boi 1duh, nigga aint nobody but lil’white girl waiting for that sing song off key ass niggaz album.
    That joint is not going gold 1st week unless Universal,CashMoney, & YoungMoney cop 300k themselves like this did Weezy.
    You going to be one disappointed clown once your at Walmart at midnight in your jammies being the only fucker waiting for that R&B album to come out tomorrow. I hope you get jacked for your $9.99!

  • dashadyonee1

    cant wait to copp it
    @LIL MAN
    yeaa dat wouldve been good lol

  • E-Hustle

    Yo faggit Toni, dont be mad because I got layed off and collected checks! Go kill yo self hater.

  • Eminem Fanatics Society

    If eminem had a signing on his album release date people would be camping out for 3-4 blocks. Drake got a small ass line outside Best Buy.

  • Pretty Toni

    Nigga aint nobody waiting for that shit. I aint even copting fool! Just proving this nigga will sale alot of albums

  • WOW

    I’m still amazed at how much influence MTV and other music venues have on the music that we like….I mean they really CREATED this huge hype around Drake and now niggas are fallin for it. Of course the bitches are gonna fall for it but damn……. The same happened with Em. He was created…..but he’s actually fucking talented RECOVERY JUNE 21st!!!

  • Pretty Toni

    E- Hustle I bet that gets you a lot of pussy too right? Faggot ass bitch. You mine as well kill yourself, amounting to nothing in life

  • Word

    @So Icy Boi

    More buzz dont mean more sales. To be honest its about who the artist is, and Drakes got pretty mixed reviews while Em has mostly positive from what i’ve seen.

    And besides, Jay couldnt outsell Em with BP3 (Classic in most peoples minds) against Relapse (Garbage in most peoples minds). So I doubt TML with its mixed reviews and freshman artist, will beat a 10 year vet who just personifies album sales. No Stanning, but lets just be realistic

    I think TML and RECOVERY are both dope, and im buying both albums. But Em is gonna win the sales battle on the long run cuz hes cutting into Drakes 2nd week sales and beyond.

    And also, photosof people camping out in one city dont mean niggas everywhere camping out too….it just means that Drake already has about 100 copies locked up, but where are the rest?

  • Gordon B.

    “I am copping both covers on the actual CD” It’s a flip cover why would you buy two?
    I buy some old records on vinyl that I already had on CD since I started collecting but other than that I don’t see any reason to buy more than 2 copies, seems like a waste of money at least when you don’t seem to have much of it.

  • So Icy Boi!

    @E-Hustle aint nobody gonna buy Eminem CD but white people so whats ya point?

  • E-Hustle

    Ballad of Faggit Toni, of course your hating. I said I was copping 4 copies of the album and doing this shit on Unemployment from getting layed off. Yo bitch ass went out your way to hate and call me out. Call a spade a spade cock sucka.
    Hating on me supporting Em with my paper I’m getting while chillin at the crib and you at Burger King flippin burgers on the clock while mad as fuck.

    It all good, you get “Recover” from the hate on Monday.

  • So Icy Boi!

    @Word u right ….but people only buy Eminem CD because of his name and previous work he only sell records off his name and not the quality of music (NO HATE)

  • Word

    “Aint nobody gonna buy EMs CD but white people”

    Sales is sales, if only white people have been buying his CDs after all this time, then I think he gonna be good now. SMH

  • http://myspace.com/pitri_27 PITRI

    ^^ Ha i aint white and im coppin it!

  • Word

    @So Icy

    Recovery is pretty quality work there. Relapse, I admit people only bought that off the hype and cuz hes Eminem, but thats the only time that happened with Eminem.SSLP – The Eminem Show have been quality shit

  • Name (required)

    The album was probably leaked by the record label themselves to hype it all up even more and increase sales when it actually drops, it’s a new form a strategy and it’s crucial in order to meet up the demands of the internet.

    It also removes any unsatisfied factors that might be experienced if the album is not satisfying, the target would then not be on the artist but on the fact that it got leaked (unconsciously)

    It also creates enough space for people to have time to buy it

    And let’s not forget that the leak also spreads the material even better which in the end eventually creates future sales.

  • E-Hustle

    Icy boi, I aint white, I’m black & puerto rican so what’s your point? Niggaz support Em. Go check your favorite rappers blogs, twitters, facebooks, or whatever the fuck, they all supporting this album.

    And Ballad of Faggit Toni, get off my dick fool. your comebacks are lame. This bum going to repeat the same shit I said to him and say it back to me. yaaaaaaaaaaawn.
    Aint it about that time for you to go to wal mart and get in that imaginary line for drakes album release?

    @So Icy

    And you right, certain artist put out better quality stuff with lesser sales. Thats true, see DISTANT RELATIVES

  • Thank Me Hater

    @So Icy and I’m black and I’m def coppin….besides I feel that Drake and Em pretty much have the same fan base…..White people buying Em’s shit and white people buying Drake’s shit. I guarantee that more black MC’s respect Eminem than Drake….cmonson

    drakes buzz has been dead for months now. the more his album leaked the least ppl wanted it. Em will come close to a mill the 1st week. everybody is pushing RECOVERY. this is the album everybody been waitin for since last year

  • Pretty Toni

    E- Hustle you aint dead yet? COcksuckin ass SPIC+NIGGER, FUCK OUTTA HERE (GOTTI VOICE)

    I cant stand dirty wetbacks like you, taking all my government tax money. Faggot! GO MOW LAWNS AND GET THE FUCK OFF MY CHECK BITCH!!!

  • ynkeesnum1fan

    and Em sold one mill in the 1st week twice. MMLP and TES. maybe this will be the 3rd time #Recovery

  • Wow.

    The edge will go to Em.
    Because, his name alone gets people’s attention.
    Not to mention, he’s more liked, by both BLACK and WHITE people.
    He’s been more liked and respected since he first started releasing shit on a major label.

    If Em.. can outsell Jay-Z, he can easily outsell Drake, no question about it.

    Why do people think that only white people listen to Eminem? Blacks like him and listen to him as much as whites. Stop the ignorant shit.

  • Drizzle-Nutz

    I wonder why they dont play EM on hot 97 here in NY? It really bothers me. Top 10 single and they never play him… now thats Racist!

  • http://rapradar.com/2010/06/08/eminem-firecoveryi-back-cover/ che-el-pibe

    its next monday but i cant wait ………. dead ass

  • ynkeesnum1fan

    they dont play em on hot 97 cuz his music is not radio music. thats y he has his own radio station SHADE45. wat em song would u hear on hot97? he’s just not that kind of artist

  • ynkeesnum1fan

    but we’ll find out how much em sells after next week. its gettin a lot of promotion

  • Marshall Mathers …… DUHH !

    ppl arent camping out to get his album. there camping out to get his autograph cuz he’s doin a signin. no way drake will sell more then Em. most of his songs r bubblegum radio songs. he makes good music but his MC skills ARE NOT on the same level as Ems… **IMO** lets hope Em gets a millie n d 1st week! all real RAP / HIP HOP fans r coppin it + Im buyin a few copies. MONDAY I’M THERE SON!!!! haha

  • Drizzle-Nutz

    they even play not afraid on BET, they could atleast play it on hot 97

  • Zombie

    @E-Hustle

    Aint nobody gonna buy eminem cd but white people.? ok maybe but AINT NOBODY GONNA BUY DRAKE’S ALBUM BUT 10YR OLD GIRLS.!

    and im not white and im coppin’ em’s album fersure.!

  • WòŕĐ ṦṁίϦ₮

    Eminem makes Eminem music, the shit you hear on the radio are a dime a dozen. The shit you hear on the radio is the same shit people have been rappin about since Rap started. Eminem makes Eminem music, thats one of the things that sets him apart from all these non-original ass niggas. RECOVERY JUNE 21, ITS A MUST TO ANY REAL RAP ALBUM COLLECTION, Oh yeah shout outs to Roots Black Thought still killin it.

  • Ac@pella!

    Oh wowwww! That’s a really big push up!…smh…I thought they were gonna say that shit got pushed up to tomorrow. Had me excited 4 no fuckin reason…

  • Midnite

    In the long run Em will outsell Drake.Em will def sell more than 500,000 1st week,Drake i don’t know.Real heads are not really feeling that R&B shit like the little girls do.Sorry,it’s just the truth……

  • P-Hall

    LOL at the same dumbass talkin to himself under different names, E-Hustle and Pretty Toni, trying to sound black and ain’t and can’t. Dumb fart.

  • ynkeesnum1fan

    Em is a living legend. u think pac n biggie r big wait till em is long gone then everybody will miss him n his music. wont be another like em ever. iam buyin recovery but not sure yet if the delux version is only for itunes

  • I KNOW BETTER

    The reason why it won’t get the full week in advance because Drake and Em are under the same umbrella…Universal. If Em dropped the same day as Drake, Em would completely overshadow him. The powers that be don’t want that @ all. The milli talk is wild. Both will be highly successful. Em>Drake though to be honest. And Recovery is the album I been waiting for since The Eminem Show…

    I think em dropping is gonna help drake out for week 2. When people picking up Recovery TML gonna be sitting right next to it they prolly just grab that shit too.

  • Thank Me Hater

    BTW there are so many fuckin punchlines on this Em album that it’s CRAZY

    For example “I don’t gas my Mercedes after midnight I treat it like a magui
    Cuz it will turn into a gremlin, and run over kids, women and men” I had to go back to the 90′s gremlin movie to know what a Magui was and what happened after you fed them after midnight!! LOL

    Also “It’s time to put the math back in Mathers cause I’m a fucking problem” Like a math problem LMAO!! I know I’m stupid but damn!! There’s some shit I’m still missing

  • shayden

    @thank me hater, thanks for breakin down that line abut the gremlins it went over my head, shit thats wut i love bout this album u can listen fifty times and still find somthin new

  • Toya

    Does that mean I’ll get my pre-ordered album Friday? Or will it arrive Monday now that that’s its scheduled release date?

  • Toya

    @Thank Me Hater, that probably explains why I was laughing at the gremlins line while my cousin was looking at me like I was an idiot. I doubt he’s ever seen the movie Gremlins or remembers the Rules of the Gremlin.

  • KJ

    For real. some of you are too obsessed with album sales…. Em is already the best selling artist of the last decade, a feat Drake will NEVER topple. And for the simple fact that ‘Recovery’ is much better than ‘Thank Me Later’, Em will still outsell it in the long run.

  • drake is gay

    to Boi- 1duh, you are a dumb nigger. They are only waiting outside for drake’s busted ass album becuase he’s there for a signing. Nobody wants that piece of shit cd.

    Yeah, Em went all out with the metaphors and similes this go round… punchlines are mad crazy and the lyrics are still second to none. That’s wot makes this his best album IMO.

  • shayden

    Ok I jus finished listenng to ur never over for the hundreth time probably but i am still so moved and amzed at him litterally layin his heart out and mainly for hs fans. What other artists do that shit? i mean to put absolutely everything u have into ur music emotionally and intellectually. I can only think of one other person and that would be 2pac but unfortuately we didnt get the chance to see him evolve like Em. The emotion in this song is raw and as real as it gets, wow

  • germany4worldcup2010

    check my em/wayne in the studio vid out, i think you all will like it

  • germany4worldcup2010

    go to the youpage for lyrics and details, the audios shit

  • Drucifer

    Ems album > Drakes album

    And I dont care who sells more this round, because Em is the best selling rapper in history and he been in the game 11 years, his legacy is secure whether or not this album sells 1 copy or 10 million

  • Extreme101

    For all of y’all that said it will fuck up the first week sales, it won’t sales are recorded from Monday to Sunday so it will actually help it.

    For EVERYONE WHO DON”T KNOW!!!!! WHen you buy recovery you get to download another twelve tracks. Call it RELAPSE 2 CALL it Whatever, fuck it, just call it better shit than anyone else. BUY THE SHIT and you’ll have that shit playing for weeks!!!
    I’ve heard Recovery and its Dope, I don’t really like to rank his cd’s there all different. but Recovery is a NEW EM. super tight metaphores, going hard on every track.

  • shayden

    @ even flow how do u kno this?

  • Whatever

    Don’t care about the sales. The kind of music he does now is not the kind of music he did then, and I don’t mean I want his old shit back, I do agree on the fact that he needed a change, but this? Pink and Rihanna? That is NOT the same Eminem that I supported all these years back. It’s someone else who DOES care about the sales, and not about hip-hop.

  • http://www.myspace.com/djhookparty DJ HOOK

    It’s more white people then black people. I don’t think black people are buying Eminem & I don’t think white people are buying Drake. Yall do the math. I use to say Eminem was the best. But that last double cd was horrible. Em fell off. Drake is ok but too soft for me. I’m a Dj so I gotta cop both. But once the party is over I won’t be blasting either one of them. Hip Hop is Dead

    PLEASE HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!!

  • jr1987

    Everyone lets support hip-hop
    and buy the Eminem album

    Why Em is using the swiss flag instead of the ususal redcrossflag ?
    Swiss flag: with cross on red, and red cross like the name is already explain: red cross on with.

  • http://rapradar.com spliggidy splash

    @ eminem1

    Um…how can I put this. A very long time to say the least. Pretty sure, I’ve heard every word that has ever been recorded from Em, and Im telling you this is his BEST work. Not kidding at all. The substance alone in his music this time around is unlike anything he’s put out before. He’s always shown vulnerability but not like this. Recovery is the end result of a clear headed genius at the top of his craft. Metaphors, hooks, delivery, subject matter, beats…everythings on point. “Cold wind”, “Fire”, “No Love’ just by themselves are worth the purchase. Trust me.
