Eminem - Eminem And Royce Storm The Billboard Chart

Eminem and Royce Da 5.9" have topped the Billboard album chart.

The pair flew straight to the top slot in the US with their Bad Meets Evil EP, 'Hell: The Sequel' selling a staggering 171,000 copies in its first week of release, much to the astonishment of the less-established artist.

Royce told MTV News: "You know I ain't never sold no records. I knew it had the potential. I just really was more focused on the whole 'critically acclaimed' thing, and I think we achieved that. I'm only hearing good things about how people feel about the album."

Royce and Eminem will next release 'Lighters' - which also features Bruno Mars - from the EP as a single and are expecting even bigger things.

Royce added: "I definitely think that 'Lighters' is gonna be the record that is gonna carry the sales into something even bigger than what the first week was. Because of a record like 'Lighters' and what it's doing on radio right now, the first-week sales aren't even an indicator of where we're going to end up after we close up with this project."
