Earlier this year, Eminem surprised the world with his new album “Music To Be Murdered By.”
This week, he unexpectedly released a deluxe edition containing numerous “B-side” tracks.
Branded as “Music To Be Murdered By – Side B (Deluxe Edition),” the album began soaring up the US iTunes sales chart following its release late Thursday night. By Friday morning, the explicit version was #1 on the all-genre listing. It remains in that position as of press time at 12:45PM ET Friday.
Paul McCartney’s new “McCartney III” follows at #2, ahead of Taylor Swift’s “evermore” at 3. Carrie Underwood’s “My Gift” sits at #4, and the clean version of “Music To Be Murdered By – Side B” is #5.
