Eminem’s latest album Kamikaze has reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, after the surprise release of the album in August. Kamikaze earned the fourth-largest sales for an album in 2018 with 434,000 equivalent units sold, and is Eminem’s ninth album to reach No. 1. All of Eminem’s solo albums since 2000’s The Marshall Mather LP have topped the charts, tying him with Garth Brooks and The Rolling Stones in fifth place for most No. 1 albums. Kamikaze also gave Eminem his largest streaming week ever and gave him his second No. 1 album in less than a year following the release of Revival in January.
