Eminem, Train Top iTunes Year-End Sales Charts

Photo Courtesy - Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records(NEW YORK) -- With the end of the year rapidly approaching, iTunes has released its Rewind 2010 Roundup, a look at the digital retailer’s top-selling singles and albums of the past year.  The digital retailer's number one album of the year was Eminem's Recovery.

Alex Luke, iTunes director of global music initiatives, says of Eminem, "He had an amazing year, digitally."  According to Luke, Recovery sold more digital copies in one year than any other artist in iTunes history -- over 700,000 copies.

iTunes' editorial staff also named Eminem its Artist of the Year.  But while the rapper placed two songs in iTunes' list of the top-selling songs of 2010 -- "Not Afraid" and "Love the Way You Lie" -- the number one spot on that chart went to Train's "Hey Soul Sister."

That song actually came out way back in August of 2009, but Luke explains, "Slowly, across the last 12 months, all these different audiences have discovered that song...it's just one of those big pop songs you can't escape."  He adds, "It appeals to a very young and a very old audience, and every year the biggest records of the year are those records that kind of cross like that."

iTunes' editorial staff named B.o.B. New Artist of the Year, thanks to his hits "Airplanes" and "Nothin' on You."
