Eminem has stormed back to the top of the U.S. album charts with “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.”

The album was expected to debut at number one with close to 750,000 first-week sales, but the final figure is closer to 800,000.

It hit the top spot with 792,000 copies sold, making the release the second biggest opener of the year, behind Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience,” which entered the Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 968,000 in March.
