"Recovery' selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist. I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I'm delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey."

Paul Rosenberg, the 'Love The Way You Lie' star's manager, added:

"We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of 'Recovery.' Over the years we've made a concerted effort to engage Em's online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding.
