Eminem's Recovery had the best sales week of the year more than 700k in the US and the last album to sell 1 million copies was Lil Wayne's The Carter lll . However, Taylor Swift's new album Speak Now's sales might reach the one million copy number mark!
Since then, the closest any other album has come to matching that performance was AC/DC's "Black Ice," which bowed with 784,000 units in the week ended Oct. 24, 2008, and has sold a total of 2.2 million, according to SoundScan. Eminem's "Recovery," the sales champ of 2010 so far, debuted with 741,000 units in the week ended June 27 and has racked up total U.S. sales of 1.5 million, according to SoundScan.
According to Billboard.com, the country cutie pie will join other highly anticipated albums expected out later this year include titles from Susan Boyle, Rihanna, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Linkin Park, Kid Rock, Norah Jones, Diddy and Lil Wayne.
