Eminem has bounced back with his comeback single titled Crack A Bottle, which has broken the download record within the first week of its release.

The song has been downloaded more than 418,000 times within the first week, and has beaten the former record 367,000 times set up by TI and Rihanna's Live Your Life.

The song featuring Eminem’s mentor Dr Dre and his protege 50 Cent, has debuted at number four in the UK singles chart, while 50 Cent has topped the chart for the fourth time.

Eminem’s single from his album Relapse, which is his first in the last five years, has also dethroned Kelly Clarkson from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in America, according to Contactmusic.

Crack A Bottle has become the 3rd best-selling download single in America, behind after Lady GaGa's Just Dance downloaded 419,000 times and Flo Rida's Low downloaded 467,000 times.

Meanwhile, Eminem's new album Relapse featuring hit song Crack A Bottle, is expected to release later this year.
