This past weekend [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm] performed his latest Recovery single, “Space Bound” live for the first time. The Real Slim Shady granted the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival crowd with the live version of his song on the first night of the three-day festival.
The stars Sasha Grey playing in the background and Em’s hype man keeping the crowd involved. Eminem rocked the whole crowd with his bittersweet lyrics all the way to the murky end.
The lights dimmed, the crowd roared. When they arose again, the hype man began “Much Love”–which is exactly what the crowd showed our boy Em!
Just recently Eminem reached an impressive milestone: his album, Recovery, became the first ever to go platinum via digital downloads. T
his means that Recovery is the first album to sell over a million downloads. He also has two diamond selling albums with The Marshal Mathers LP and The Eminem Show, which makes him the first rapper ever to do so.
Seems like a lot of firsts for the battle rapper that came out of Detroit about a decade ago.
Well, we couldn’t be more proud of him.
After some rocky times in his personal life, he is clean, sober, back on track, and working harder than ever.
His résumé is impressive and it just keeps getting better with time.
I just wonder what his next milestone will be. Keep up the good work, Em!
Here is the video for “Space Bound.” His album Recovery is out now.
