Eminem's 'Relapse' debut becomes year's best first week seller
As expected, Eminem comes roaring in at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart with the debut of "Relapse," selling 608,000 copies.
It's the rapper's first studio set in five years and his fifth straight chart-topping album. Slim Shady's released six albums in all, which have collectively sold 34 million units, making him the best-selling hip-hop artist since Nielsen SoundScan began collection album sales data in 1991.
This comeback kid had a little help from three singles already on the radio and charting: "We Made You," "Beautiful" and "Old Time's Sake." The former had a pretty popular video recently lampooning celebrity stand-bys like Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian.

Nobody has sold more records in one week since AC/DC returned with Wal-mart exclusive "Black Ice" in October last year, with 784,000.
The new Eminem action pushes Green Day's "21st Century Breakdown" to No. 2 after its first full week in stores. It experienced only a 23% sales slip to 166,000.
At No. 3 is Kenny Chesney's second greatest hits package, the aptly titled "Greatest Hits II," with 89,000. One of our top 12 summer touring artists, Chesney has put eight albums in the top 10 of the chart.
Dane Cook's "ISolated INcident" earns the comedian his second top 10 album at No. 5 with 61,000. 2005's "Retaliation" had a No. 4 debut with 86,000 but remained on the list for a year-and-a-half.
