^Nice try, but Dido did blow up thanks to Stan. No Angel was basically a flop up until that point. After Stan things changed and the album became a hit. No Angel wasn't even released in the UK up until October 2000.

Hugo please go read the top of the No Angel Wikipedia page and get back to me. You’ll read how the album became a success after it was released worldwide in Feb 2001. Don’t come for people unless you actually know what you are talking about.

I thought she had moderate success with the album in the states before that single, but it seems that wasn't the case.

Still, I wouldn't call her a nobody, she was just under the radar, but I believe her album was already charting BB200.

Nothing compared to Ed, I'll give you that lol

I'll retract my post.

Stop lying. No Angel was almost Gold in US before she blew up.
Album spent 22 weeks on chart before she blew up and reached top 10. She had good word of mouth, Here with me was used as theme song for tv show that had cult following.

No Angel debuted in top 100 in UK in summer 2000 only thanks to imports (and then re-entered chart and started climbing before Stan was released).

No, you were right. She had nice career in US before she blew up. She was underdog, charting for almost half a year before she blew up.

well sales have gone down since his last album and he doesn't have a huge single this time as he has in the past but those are low numbers for the last calendar chart of the year

He is the best-selling album artist of the 21st century so far, I don't think it will hurt his status, every artist has underperforming eras.

It's kinda sad, because Eminem is the biggest artist of this century.

But it's been a long time since his debut, 18 years.

Number is bad for Eminem, not for the industry standard.

But, since this is an Eminem album, it's probably that the long-run performance wasn't that bad.

I expected a top 20, or maybe top 10 on the year-end chart of 2018 for this album.

With an album like that, these numbers are really generous.

Even Eminem isn't safe. There is absolutely zero hype around this new album.

It's really a toss-up how he will do first week, but this album is gonna drop down the charts quick.
this is the most foolish comment i've ever read, do you really follow the charts? you realise he has a song with ed sheeran and it's already #1 on Spotify and itunes all over the world, this is gonna be the #1 single all over the world for the next 3 months and is gonna help sell the album like donuts, I think it's gonna keep selling well into all of 2018 if they pick the right singles, the album has lots of potential big hits especially the duet with Alicia Keys and the one with Pink is fantastic too, and I'm not even a fan

A friend of mine was always a big Eminem fan.
She didn’t know he had an album out...

@GetBack your obsession with shading anything with Bey’s name attached to it is worrisome and creepy. Like we get it, you don’t like Beyoncé.

Beyoncé is not the reason this song underperformed in fact everyone I have spoken to has praised Bey’s hook but shaded Eminem...Em is the reason this collab failed and for that we can blame the boring production, lame ass delivery and his non existent flow.

It’s a collaboration so it’s both artists fault it’s not good.

It would've got out more with Adele connected to it to the masses, far more than the other female.
But the song still would've flopped.

The difference is though, Beyoncé delivered, Eminem didn’t.

But Bey fans always say that, if the new Lion King movie flops they will blame everyone else but her, and if it's massive they will say it's all down to her.
