Detroit rapper Royce Da 5’9 is more than hyped about Kamikaze doing Slim Shady numbers. The hip-hop veteran has celebrated Eminem’s surprise album destroying its competition on the sales chart.

Nickel Nine went to Instagram last night (September 9) to file away Em’s latest feat as a big win.

According to reports, Marshall Mathers’ latest solo effort sold nearly 500,000 copies in week 1.

Eminem earns his ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his surprise release Kamikaze debuts at No. 1. The set, which was released without warning on Aug. 31 via Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records, earned 434,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 6, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 252,000 were in traditional album sales. (Billboard)

A few days ago, Em’s manager Paul Rosenberg announced the LP’s physical copies had arrived in stores.

Some reports speculated Kamikaze could have one of the best opening sales weeks of 2018.

Industry forecasters suggest the effort — which was released without warning on Aug. 31 via Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records — may bow with over 360,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 6. That sum would land Kamikaze the fifth-biggest week of 2018 for an album, trailing only the debut weeks of Drake’s Scorpion (732,000 units; according to Nielsen Music), Travis Scott’s Astroworld (537,000), Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys (461,000) and J. Cole’s KOD (397,000). (Billboard)
