Eminem's 'Crack A Bottle' breaks download record

Comeback single shoots to the top of the US charts

Eminem's comeback single 'Crack A Bottle' has broken the record for opening week download sales in the US.

The song, which is currently at Number One in Billboard Hot 100, sold 418,000 copies online in its first week.

However, the song has so far failed to become the all-time best-selling download single in terms of sales in the US. It's in third place behind Lady Gaga's 'Just Dance' (419,000) and Flo Rida's 'Low' (467,000).

The previous record for best opening week digital sales was for 'Live Your Life' by T.I. featuring Rihanna, which was downloaded 335,000 times in its week of release, reports Billboard.

Last month, 50 Cent confirmed that Eminem's new album, called 'Relapse' was "two weeks" away from being completed.
