Eminem Release Brought Forward???

Hey guys, just saw this on NME.com

...hope it happens!!




"EMINEM’s new album ’ENCORE’ has leaked onto the Internet, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Label bosses are now meeting to work out whether to bring forward the release of the record, which is currently scheduled for November 15.

When the rapper’s last album, ’The Eminem Show’ leaked online its release was brought forward as a damage control exercise when pirated copies of the record appeared in markets and shop stalls in American cities.

A source close to Eminem told NME.COM: "We’re not sure how much of the record has leaked but people are very concerned. The release date may now come forward."


This could gaurantee U2 a no.1 !

very good dear friend...

BUT!!! ...my point is:

Eminems album was going to be released one week before U2....and its sales expectations are going to be quite massive...probably 1 million in the first week...therefore about 600,000 in the second week, which would have made it hard for U2 to get to no.1 .....

..NOW, if they move Em forward a week to counteract the leak...then it would make it easier for U2 to get a No.1 first week...


eh?

Has anyone gone to any eminem\other rap message boards to see what the fans are like? Is it just all mindless babble like 'omg da fukn MandM new albumz ROX dog!' Completely off topic, but I want to know what type of ppl they are and I'm too lazy to find out myself.

I don't mind if U2 is #1 or #25, the only thing I mind is I like the album

theyre probably not unlike you. lazy, curious, enjoy music.

might be different music from yours, but theres little reason to assume they babble mindlessly anymore than what goes on here.

The subject is off-topic. Eminem will sell well initially, but I think his new album will tank just like Alanis' sophomore effort which debuted strong then went downhill from there. U2 won't be #1 but their record will linger like a leech that refuses to go away, and will have sales that could rival ATYCLB and quality that could come close to Achtung (but not Joshua Tree).

Cheers,

J

So they're already promoting the second song from the album--"Mosh" after "Just Lose It"--and it hasn't even come out yet?

psssst... this will be eminem's third album... fourth if you count the 8mile soundtrack. a little late for the sophomore jinx.

like it or not, eminem is now an established artist. he's not going away anytime soon, even if this album is sub-par... which none of us can really claim, seeing as we haven't heard it yet.
