50 Cent, Eminem and Dr. Dre

Kelly Clarkson may have just had the biggest leap on Billboard’s Hot 100, but Eminem is breaking records of his own.

“Crack the Bottle,” Marshall Mather’s collaboration with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre, just scored the most digital downloads during a song’s debut week. The single was purchased 418,000 times, approximately 180,000 times more than Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You.”

Only Flo Rida’s “Low” (467,000) and Lady GaGa’s “Just Dance” (419,000) have done better than “Bottle.”

“Lose Yourself” was ‘s only other song to reach the top of the Hot 100. That song spent 12 weeks at #1 after its 2002 release.
