Eminem’s ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ jumps to #3 on Billboard 200, breaking fifty-year-old record for Biggest Chart Leap

Eminem’s latest studio album ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ has shattered a fifty-year-old record for biggest leap on the Billboard 200 chart. Boosted by the recent release of ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B’ (a deluxe reissue featuring 16 additional tracks), the album jumped to the #3 spot from #199 in the week ending December 24.

Released on January 17, the original 20-track version of ‘Music to Be Murdered By’ debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and later received gold certification from the RIAA. ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B’ arrived on December 18, quickly earning 94,000 equivalent album units — a staggering 1,125 percent increase in sales from the previous week.

Prior to the release of ‘Music to Be Murdered By – Side B’, the record for biggest leap on the Billboard 200 was held by Bob Dylan’s 1970 album ‘Self Portrait’.
