Eminem's seventh album "Recovery" has become the first record to sell over a million downloads. According to Neilsen Soundscan, "Recovery" has sold 1,001,000 digital copies, which amounts to about a quarter of the set's overall 3.9 million sales.
The album, which includes the smash hits "Love the Way You Lie" and "Not Afraid," was the best-selling record of 2010.
Eminem may not hold on to record for best-selling digital album for long. Adele's "21," this year's best-selling record, is very likely to surpass one million in digital sales later this week.
"21" has sold exceptionally well as a download, and digital sales account for a larger portion of Adele's overall sales tally.
