According to BuzzAngle Music’s annual year-end music report, Eminem sold the most albums of any artist in 2018 despite genre.
Em’s pure album sales totals reached 755,027 units with half of those coming from his 10th studio album, Kamikaze. The album was also streamed over 760 million times since its release in August. The BuzzAngle Music report also showed Eminem had an overall successful return to the rap game coming in at #4 in the category of Total Consumption only trailing Drake, Post Malone, and XXXTentacion. Em also rested at the #4 spot in total streams after amassing 2.5 billion in that category.
The battle between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly undoubtedly sparked more intrigue around Em’s musical output with his response track, “Killshot”, marking the biggest debut of a hip-hop video in YouTube’s history.
