Album of the week # 3

Eminem – Recovery 2010

Marshall Bruce Mathers III (born October 17, 1972), better known by his stage name Eminem (often styled "EMINƎM"), is an American rapper, record producer, and actor. Eminem quickly gained popularity in 1999 with his major-label debut album, The Slim Shady LP, which won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. The following album, The Marshall Mathers LP, became the fastest-selling solo album in United States history. It brought Eminem increased popularity, including his own record label, Shady Records, and brought his group project, D12, to mainstream recognition.

Recovery is the seventh studio album by American rapper Eminem, released June 18, 2010 by Aftermath Entertainment and Shady Records. Production for the album took place during 2009 to 2010 at several recording studios and was handled by various record producers, including Alex da Kid, Just Blaze, Boi-1da, Jim Jonsin, DJ Khalil, and Dr. Dre. Originally recorded as a sequel to Eminem's previous album Relapse (2009), Recovery features more introspective and emotional content than its predecessor.

The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 741,000 copies in its first week in the United States. It became Eminem's sixth consecutive number-one album in the US and topped the chart for five consecutive weeks. It also achieved international commercial success, charting at number one in several other countries, and produced two singles that achieved chart success, including international hits "Not Afraid" and "Love the Way You Lie". Despite some criticism towards its consistency, Recovery received generally positive reviews from most music critics. As of August 15, 2010, the album had sold 2.11 million copies in the US.

  1. eminem a dat lovitura cu ulitmele lui piese. personal nu le ascult atunci cand sunt la pc dar fratele meu le asculta si asa ajung si la urechile mele ultimele noutati din partea aceasat a muzicii.
    si-mi plac si versurile, si ritmul, tot. o revenire buna, chiar foarte buna, as spune.
