Eminem’s pacing his way into the history books as his sales for The Marshall Mathers LP 2 keep growing. According to Billboard, the album sold another 13,000 copies, pushing the total numbers sold over two million. As it stands, all of Marshall’s albums have scored over two millions copies sold.

The small sales increase mattered in another big way for Em as his cumulative sales currently stand at 44.91 million. The total pushes him past country legend George Strait (44.89 million) for number six on the best-selling album artists list. Em’s now the second-highest male seller on the list behind Garth Brooks, who leads all with 69.52 million. The Beatles ranks second (65.55 million) and Metallica places third (54.26 million) while Mariah Carey (54.24 million) and Celine Dion (52.21 million) round out the top five.
