Eminem’s “Curtain Call: The Hits” has just been certified as 7x Platinum after selling seven million units as of Oct. 21, almost 11 years after the greatest hits collection was released.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America, Marshall Mathers’ “Curtain Call: The Hits” has reached multi-platinum levels after having been released on Nov. 29, 2005.

“Curtain Call: The Hits” reportedly sold 441,000 units on its first-week sales and earned Eminem the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s albums chart.  However, Slim Shady’s 2002 album “The Eminem Show” and 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP” have become his best-selling ones after selling over 1 million copies upon its release. The RIAA has certified the two albums as Diamond.

Earlier, the “Lose Yourself” rapper released an eight-minute political single “Campaign Speech,” wherein he slammed supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. (Read Eminem disses Donald Trump on his ‘Campaign Speech’ [AUDIO])

Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP 1 and 2” have reportedly sold 13.427 million copies between 2000 and 2013, making it the best-selling hip-hop album collection so far, according to Billboard. (Read: ‘Marshall Mathers LPs’ named best-selling rap album series of all time)
