Following a five year hiatus, Eminem returned to the game and sold well with Relapse. However, the critics felt Eminem would have been better off if he had remained in hiatus. Looking back on the album, Eminem agreed.
Eminem followed 2009's Relapse with Recovery and took the game by storm. The album posted two consecutive chart toppers and was met with strong reviews. Throughout the year, Eminem won several awards for the album.
This trend has continued into 2011, as Eminem tied Justin Beiber for the most awards at the Billboard Music Awards. However, despite winning six awards, Eminem was not present for the show.
Eminem won awards for 'Top Artist,' 'Top Male Artist,' 'Top Rap Artist,' 'Top Billboard Album' (Recovery), 'Top Rap Album,' 'Top Rap Song' ("Love The Way You Lie").
