Eminem is back and it is in a big way. Emâ€™s newest single â€œNot Afraid,â€ from his soon due Recovery album, entered the Hot 100 chart at #1. This marks the third-time in the rapperâ€™s career, that he has had a single reach the Hot 100 #1 position.
On October 5, 2002, â€œLose Yourselfâ€ from the soundtrack to 8 Mile, debuted at #43 and hit #1 by November 9. The song would remain at #1 for 12-consecutive weeks, making it the most successful single of Eminemâ€™s career.
â€œCrack A Bottle,â€ the first single off of Eminemâ€™s latest album, Relapse, features Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, spent its first three weeks at #78, before reaching the #1 spot. The song was pushed to the top of the charts after moving 418,000 units through digital download.
â€œNot Afraidâ€ is the first song of the rapperâ€™s career to enter the chart at #1. The song topped the largest weekly sales tally to-date this year, selling 379,000 copies the first week. This is good enough for fourth all-time during the digital download era.
The three songs that have sold more than â€œNot Afraidâ€ and all of them were released in 2009; Flo Ridaâ€™s â€œRight Roundâ€ â€“ 636,000, the Black Eyed Peasâ€™ â€œBoom Boom Powâ€ â€“ 465,000, Eminem feat. Dr. Dre and 50 Cent â€œCrack A Bottleâ€ â€“ 418,000.
