Eminem’s ‘Recovery’ is 2010’s best-selling album

NEW YORK (AP) — Eminem has fully recovered: His latest CD is 2010’s best-selling album.

“Recovery” moved 3.4 million units since its June release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. No. 2 on the list is Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” which sold about 3.1 million records. “Speak Now,” Taylor Swift’s third CD, which was released in late October, is No. 3, selling about 2.96 million copies.

While Eminem owns last year’s top CD, his Rihanna-assisted “Love the Way You Lie” is No. 3 on the list of top songs. He was beat out by Katy Perry’s smash hit, “California Gurls.” The song features Snoop Dogg and moved 4.4 million tracks in 2010. Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” is second with 4.3 million sold; the Top 5 includes Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” and B.o.B’s “Airplanes.”

Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0” and Susan Boyle’s “The Gift” round out last year’s Top 5 albums.
