Eminem’s achievements, great projects and legendary songs, of course, keep him at record highs on the best-selling albums list, even in the year he never released an album. Eminem’s place in the music market cannot be overlooked. Eminem, the best-selling rapper of all time with more than 220 million albums sold worldwide and two diamond-certified LPs to his name (The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show), deserves it all.
Curtain Call: The Hits, released on December 6, 2005, contains legendary Eminem tracks. Eminem, who presented a perfect album to his fans with tracks such as “Lose Yourself”, “Stan”, “Sing For The Moment”, “Mockingbird”, “When I’m Gone”, made history with this album.
In addition, Curtain Call: The Hits already holds the title of the longest charting rap album, surpassing 550 consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200.
Curtain Call had sold 441,000 copies in just two days as part of a short opening week, debuting at #1 on the Billborard 200. It reached platinum status in three weeks and has been certified 7x platinum so far.
