Eminem is on course to steal the best album sales week of 2010 in the U.S. - his RECOVERY is expected to top the Billboard chart next week (beg28Jun10) with sales of well over 500,000.
Sade's Soldier of Fortune shot to the top of the charts in February (10) with opening week sales of 502,000. Experts predict the rapper will almost certainly outsell that.
Recovery is slated to come close to matching first-week sales of his 2009 comeback album, Relapse, which shifted 608,000.
It will be Eminem's sixth consecutive number one album in the U.S.
