Eminem’s REVIVAL is on course for a No. 1 debut on next week’s Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. If REVIVAL does top the list, it will mark Eminem’s eighth consecutive and total, No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
Those in the know are still suggesting that it will only push 250,000 album units in it’s first weeks sales, which will be Eminem’s lowest first-week sales ever.
Eminem’s last album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which debuted at No. 1 with 792,000 copies sold in its first week. Eminem also topped the chart with Recovery (2010), Relapse (2009), Curtain Call: The Hits (2005), Encore (2004), The Eminem Show (2002) and The Marshall Mathers LP (2000). His only album to miss the top slot was his major label debut effort, The Slim Shady LP, which debuted and peaked at No. 2.
