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.
