The most notable releases had been from 6LACK and YoungBoy Never Broken Again with the previous releasing a well-timed high quality album and the latter combining his EP collection to make a brand new undertaking.

Eminem’s sales figures might be even stronger than projected initially. The initially estimate had Kamikaze raking in $350,000 in its first week, but now those numbers have been adjusted to well over 400,000 units sold. The numbers have been compiled by Chart Data, one the Internet’s most trusted sources analytics.
The feat is quite impressive considering Eminem pulled the lever on the record when no one expected it, on Thursday-Friday at the stroke midnight. Eminem fans were anxiously awaiting his submission to the Venom soundtrack when surprise, Marshall delivered a full LP. On the other hand, it doesn’t hurt that Eminem’s rap feudalism help generate a ton interest in the project, attention he would have likely garnered had he dropped another Revival. In comparison, Nicki Minaj only managed 185,000 copies sold with every trick in the book.
The longer the wait for Eminem’s anticipated response to Machine Gun Kelly, the likelier rap fans are to regurgitate his album, meaning Kamikaze could far exceed the estimated total, and keep its pace going into next week. Eminem has also demonstrated a willingness to do things the old fashioned way, in ordering a distribution deal in retail markets for CD editions his Kamikaze release.
Eminem’s newest Kamikaze album may have been a surprise, but the numbers it’s projected to put up on the board are not.
Hits Daily Double reports that the project will likely pull in 200,000 at the minumum within its first week, taking into account that Kamikaze physical releases have not yet rolled out. Last year, Em’s Revival pulled 267,000 units in its debut run, with 197,000 those coming from taditional sales.
More tangible metrics can be observed through streaming platforms at the moment with Kamikaze occupying the Top 3 tracks on Apple Music with “The Ringer,” the Joyner Lucas-assisted”Lucky You,” and “Greatest.” In total, eight the Top 10 tracks and 13 the Top 20 all belong to Eminem. Over on the iTunes charts, Kamikaze is currently the No. 1 album with four the Top 10 tracks being his as well. Spotify’s United States’ tally has Em with the Top 3 songs with 13 sitting in the Top 20 while the album sits as the No. 1 digital album at Amazon.
It’s all with good reason, too. Thursday night marked the unprecedented arrival Em’s Kamikaze in which he essentially came for the jugular anyone in sight with his producer Illadaproducer telling Rolling Stone that Kamikaze marks the return Slim Shady.
“Right away he comes out just blowing bad, spittin’. This is Eminem! Top five, dead or alive. I want to hear him go bad. And I got what I was looking for,” Illa told the publication. “A lot Em’s more refined fans …] they liked Revival. I liked Revival too.

Queen was finally released this week after being pushed back a couple times. Nicki Minaj’s comeback already had a strong contender in Travis Scott’s Astroworld, which is currently in its second week on the charts. While many are predicting that his album will remain in the number one slot despite Queen‘s arrival, Nicki Minaj is letting people know that her record is buzzing louder than the haters.
