Eminem becomes first artist to sell 1 million downloads of an album

Here’s a milestone that feels like it should’ve already been set, but congratulations are still in order for Eminem, who has become the first artist ever to sell more than 1 million downloads of an album. Online sales amount for one-quarter of the 3.9 million copies moved for 2010’s Recovery, the best-selling record of last year. It looks like Eminem won’t be in the million-downloads club alone for long—Rolling Stone reports that Adele is set to cross 1 million digital sales later this week for 21, and at the pace she’s at she’ll probably beat Eminem’s record-setting mark.
