blame it on Shake December 3, 2014

Although it’s not a #1 album like KXNG Crooked professed on his latest freestyle (it did take the #1 spot on iTunes, just not overall sales), Eminem and the Shady team accept the bronze medal with Shady XV taking the #3 spot in it’s first week on charts — with Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire landing at #6.

Utilizing Billboard’s new measurement system — which includes the number of albums sold + number of singles sold/number of times an album is streamed (1,500 streams or 10 single sales equals one album sale) — Shady XV managed to move 148k units, whereas Ross peddled 79k copies of Hood Billionaire.

Beyoncé’s Platinum Edition also made it’s debut with a grand total of 71k in sales (42,959 albums + 5,146,703 streams).
