Who bought the album? Did it live up to the hype? I think Eminem can sell 300k without any promotion at this point. His last album is almost 2 times and platinum and he even admitted it wasn’t that great.

Also Drake managed to sell another 157k putting him over the gold status in his second week. The Roots sold 51k, I didn’t even knew they dropped an album.
