Thanks in part to another successful collaboration with RiRi, Slim Shady is moving on up!
Eminem has now sold over 44.91 million records, which pushes him up ahead of country icon George Strait and places him squarely at number two on the list of best selling male artists since the SoundScan era began in 1991.
Monster, his marvelous track with Rihanna, certainly helped him eclipse ole Georgie boy, but the vast majority of his record sales come from solo efforts like The Marshall Mathers LP.
So, which solo male reigns supreme?
Garth Brooks, of course! He’s sold nearly 70 million albums in the same time period.
Wow! That’s an impressive milestone!
We wonder if Eminem will ever catch him?
