NEW YORK – Eminem wasn't satisfied with the top spot on the highest-selling CD list for 2002 -- so he took fifth place, too.
Detroit's alienated bad-boy-turned-mainstream-movie-star was named champion of the music charts with The Eminem Show, which sold 7.6 million copies, according to sales tracker SoundScan.
But that wasn't enough for the superstar. The soundtrack for 8 Mile, which Eminem produced, was No. 5 for the year, selling 3.5 million copies.
The movie -- loosely based on the rapper's early years -- didn't do badly either, pulling in $114 million at the box office.
A year ago, the No. 1 album was Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory, which sold 4.8 million copies in 2001. Hybrid remained on the chart in 2002, at No. 17.
The King did well too. Boosted by an avalanche of publicity surrounding the 25th anniversary of the death of Elvis in August, Elvis: 30 No. 1 Hits rose to No. 15 on the charts. Rap and country were dominant this year.
Following Eminem in second place was Nelly's Nellyville, which, boosted by the hit "Hot in Herre," sold 4.9 million copies.
