Grammy-winning rapper Eminem is far from local. Slim Shady’s new Revival album has already earned gold status and notched a chart-topping debut in the United Kingdom.
According to new reports, Marshall Mathers’ newly released LP crushed its competition with the second-biggest debut on the UK charts.
With little promotion and even less warning that a new collection was coming as quickly as it did, Eminem has debuted his new album Revival at No. 1 in the U.K., which is an accomplishment he has managed many times now. According to the Official Charts Company, the newly-released record kicks off with an impressive 132,000 equivalent copies, which is an especially large sum for the country. (Forbes)
Along with the big sales news, Em is speculated to perform at next year’s Coachella music festival in California.
Detroit rap icon Eminem, pop music queen Beyoncé, and R&B crooner The Weeknd are set to headline the 2018 edition of Coachella, industry sources tell Consequence of Sound. America’s preeminent music festival returns for its 19th edition on April 13th-15th and April 20th-22nd at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. An official lineup announcement is expected in early January coinciding with the on sale of tickets. (Consequence of Sound)
This week, Em received some unexpected shade courtesy of President Donald Trump‘s son.
It’s a bit odd that he’s admitting to having prepared heavily to take on a 70 year old politician. Probably not the best look. So much for freestyle. #WillTheRealLoserPleaseStandUp https://t.co/suToF4D193

In a new interview, Em dishes on his issues with Donald Trump and desire to see him get impeached.
“It’s not so much about him hearing something I have to say, because there’s nothing I’m saying about him on Revival that he doesn’t already know about himself. It’s more that I want him to answer me because I got ideas for all kinds of shit to say back to him if he does. … [Trump in 2018?] I hope he gets impeached. I’d be there for that.” (Vulture)
