If you’re looking for a new album that’s licensed to thrill, then Kamikaze, the fresh release from Aftermath/Shady/Interscope’s Eminem, is the one for you. After dropping at digital outlets everywhere on Friday without advanced notice, fans swarmed the usual spots to listen to the record. In fact, its opening week consumption total is set to surpass 2017’s Revival at over 360,000 units, now poised to give the performer his ninth #1 album on the Billboard 200 list since 2000. In addition to its chart-topping success on iTunes in the U.S., the album also topped the all-genre list in 102 of the 112 countries it appeared on, or just over 91%. “The Ringer” is the most reactive cut on the sales side, also going to #1 at the service, just ahead of the Joyner Lucas-assisted “Lucky You” (#2), the title track (#4) and “Fall” (#6). All four songs made the all-genre chart in roughly 60-70 countries worldwide. They’re also taking over the streaming lists in force: “Ringer” (#1) and “Lucky” (#2) remain in the top two positions on Apple Music, while the reverse is true on Spotify’s Global and U.S. lists, with “Lucky” and “Ringer” now at 24.9 and 23.1 million plays, respectively. Additionally, on Shazam’s latest U.S. ranking, “Lucky” (#63), “Ringer” (#87) and “Fall” (#92) all make solid debuts in the lower half of the chart. This ring’s a perfect fit.
