Eminem announced a sequel to Curtain Call: The Hits on July 11. Aptly titled Curtain Call 2, the album includes music from all Eminem efforts from 2009’s Relapse forward, including side projects, guest appearances, film soundtrack songs and selections from his solo albums.
On Tuesday (July 19), Slim Shady unveiled a new merch capsule in support of the album via Twitter and simultaneously announced the project was now up for pre-orders. The collection includes arcade-themed t-shirts, CD box sets, cassette tapes and autographed orange vinyl.

Eminem has released 11 solo albums over the years, 12 if Music To Be Murdered By: Side B is included. The 49-year-old MC continues to sell albums at an alarming rate decades into his career. For example, 2020’s Music To Be Murdered By debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with over 279,000 total album-equivalent units sold in its opening week.
Overall, Marshall Mathers has an estimated worldwide sales of over 220 million records with 10 chart-topping albums, which all consecutively debuted at No 1., making him the first artist to ever do so.
Eminem released Curtain Call: The Hits in 2005, a compilation of the diamond-selling rapper’s biggest songs, including “The Way I Am,” “My Name Is,” “Guilty Conscience” and “Without Me.” As of 2017, it’s the longest-running rap album in Billboard 200 history.
