2010: “Recovery’ by Eminem


– Sales: 3,415,000

Never one to repress his feelings or struggles, Eminem let it all out on “Recovery,” his seventh album, in which the famous rapper talks candidly about addiction, depression, desire, and everything else he was struggling with. As usual, the catharsis paid off, as this was not only the best-selling album of 2010, but the first album in history to sell more than 1 million digital copies.
