While Justin Timberlake is still feeling the impact of his chart-topping follow-up album, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, which is officially certified platinum by the RIAADrake‘s Nothing Was the Same, is the fastest rap album to reach 1 million units sold this year. Drake’s third studio album sold 38,000 copies, which puts US album sales at 1,029,000 copies sold.

As Eminem released The Marshall Mathers LP 2 this past Tuesday, the Detroit rapper is expected to sell between 700,000 and 750,000 units in the first week. Will Em take over the hip hop charts? In their second week of sales, DJ Khaled and TLC raked in 9,000 units, and Pusha T., who released My Name Is My Name a month ago, sold the same amount of records this week as Jay-Z’s platinum-selling Magna Carta Holy Grail.
