Eminem’s “Fortnite Radio” compilation vinyl has debuted strong, landing on two Billboard charts.

The record was released as part of the Eminem x Fortnite Capsule to mark his collaboration with Epic Games in December 2023. Marshall took over the Fortnite in-game radio ahead of his virtual concert and later released those on a specially designed vinyl record. The tracklist consists of 10 songs:

1. Berzerk
2. Godzilla
3. Higher
4. Lighters
5. Not Afraid
6. Phenomenal
7. Survival
8. The Monster
9. Venom
10. Lucky You

It has been available for pre-order for months, but now actual sales have started and can be counted towards the chart performance. And suddenly, what is essentially a merchandise item priced at $35 per press has sold enough to chart at respectable positions.

Having sold 3,705 copies, the “Fortnite Radio” compilation debuted this week at No.8 on Billboard’s Top Vinyl Albums chart and No.19 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart.

Imagine the state the music business is in now if a collector’s item from a star makes it to the Top 10. And now, imagine what numbers Eminem’s new album will make, with or without promo. Actually, you don’t even have to imagine. Em’s previous album, “Music to Be Murdered By”, which he dropped without warning in the middle of winter, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200, selling 279,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
