Eminem's new project brought in over a million dollars in its first week.
It's been two weeks since Eminem released his album, Kamikaze and a lot of things have happened since then. The rapper's been accused of homophobia (which he said he regrets), dissed a whole generation of "lil" rappers and sparked a massive feud between himself and Machine Gun Kelly. Clearly, controversy sells because the rapper brought in a whole lot of money from his 13-track project.
According to Hits Daily Double, Eminem's new album, Kamikaze has generated roughly $1.8M in its opening week of song revenue. The rapper currently has six songs sitting in the top 10 of the Song Revenue Chart including "Lucky You" with Joyner Lucas, "The Ringer," "Greatest," "Not Alike," "Fall" and "Kamikaze."
The chart reveals that the album intro, "The Ringer" was the highest grossing song of the week with $254,400 while "Lucky You" with Joyner Lucas comes at second with $248,053.
Aside from his first-week revenue, Eminem just fired shots back at Machine Gun Kelly today on his song, "KILLSHOT." The song comes a few days after Em explained his beef with Machine Gun Kelly in part two of his Kamikaze interview with Sway. The fact that Eminem actually responded is interesting. He acknowledged the fact that despite people wanting him to respond to Machine Gun Kelly's "Rap Devil," he knew that all it would do is help Machine Gun Kelly's career even further.
