In the past couple of months, there has been a lot of talk about Eminem releasing his new album before the end of the year.
According to Hits Daily Double, Em’s ninth studio album will release on November 17 via Shady/Aftermath/Interscope. It will be the Detroit emcee’s first album since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 which is certified 4x platinum in the U.S.
Em’s new album is reportedly only one of the big releases that UMG has planned for the fourth quarter — Sam Smith is releasing his sophomore album The Thrill of It All on November 3rd while Taylor Swift is releasing her new LP Reputation on November 10th. If all the three dates stick, this will be a chaos as far as first and second week sales battle on the charts is concerned.
