Eminem's "Not Afraid" To Debut At No.1 On Billboard Hot 100

Published May 12, 2010

Slim Shady reigns supreme with his newest single, "Not Afraid." Two weeks after releasing the triumphant single from "Recovery," it's set to debut at No.1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart.

Not only is "Not Afraid" set to reach the top slot on the Hot 100 chart, the offering also garnered 380,000 digital downloads in its first week, the highest sales week for a digital track in 2010.

Em's "Not Afraid" is the 16th single to debut at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 52 years. Britney Spears' single, "3" was the last release to debut at No.1 back in October 2009.

Along with Diddy's "I'll Be Missing You" featuring  Faith Evans and 112, which debuted at No.1 back in June 1997, "Not Afraid" is the only other rap single to debut atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Eminem's "Recovery" hits stores on June 22.
