*After releasing his single, “Not Afraid” from his upcoming album, “Recovery,” Billboard reported the song is the 16th song to debut at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
The song was digitally released, four days after its radio debut. The song caught so much attention, getting almost 400,000 downloads in the first week. Eminem has pushed Britney Spear’s single ‘3’ out of the top spot. “Not Afraid” officially holds the most digital sales for 2010.
Eminem is no stranger to success, however, releasing a few other top charting singles in 2002 and 2009. “Crack a Bottle” still holds the record for the most downloads in the first week with 418,000-recorded sales.
The album will be released June 22.
