Guess that shows everybody who thought Eminem’s ability to the dominate the rap game was gone… which includes us.

Because as of this week, Slim Shady is still breaking records.

This week, Eminem’s “Recovery” becomes the first album to sell a cumulative 1 million downloads in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The 2010 Web/Shady/Aftermath/Interscope set’s total digital haul now stands at 1,001,000. (Overall, the album’s total U.S. sales — including physical copies — stands at more than 3.9 million.)

Since SoundScan began tracking digital album sales in 2005, a total of 12 titles have moved at least 500,000 downloads. Nipping at Eminem’s heels is the red-hot Adele, whose 2011 album, “21,” will likely surpass 1 million downloads next week.

“Recovery” debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Digital Albums chart a little over one year ago. It spent seven weeks atop both lists.

In a statement, Interscope Records vice chairman Steve Berman said regarding Eminem’s digital feat: “‘Recovery’ selling one million digital albums is an incredible achievement by an incredible artist. I have had the pleasure of working with Eminem throughout the course of his career, and I’m delighted to be a part of yet another milestone on his amazing journey.”

The rapper’s manager, Paul Rosenberg, added, “We are thrilled to congratulate Eminem on the history-making digital sales success of ‘Recovery.’ Over the years we’ve made a concerted effort to engage Em’s online fan base so this achievement is especially rewarding. Eminem made an amazing album with Recovery and the fans responded in record numbers.”

Say what you want about Em, but this is definitely a win for Hip-Hop.
