Grammy-winning rapper Eminem's Recovery was able to fend off initial speculation of being topped by Rick Ross' Teflon Don and remained at No. 1 for his fifth consecutive week on the sales chart.

Although this represents Ross' first non-number one solo debut, the "Boss" still managed to land in the Top 3.

In this week's "Sales Wrap," Eminem's Recovery remained at No. 1 selling 187,200 copies. His latest effort has now sold 1,669,600 records to date. Rick Ross' Teflon Don opened at No. 2 with 176,700 sold units after its first-week in stores. (SOHH Sales Wrap)

Initial estimates showed Ross' Teflon Don edging out Em's new album.

1. Rick Ross' Teflon Don: 188,816. 2. Eminem's Recovery: 187,968. 3. Sheryl Crow's 100 Miles From Memphis: 55,467. 4. Drake's Thank Me Later: 49,118. (Hits Daily Double)

Last week, Eminem's Recovery continued its reign on the charts.
