Nielsen SoundScan says the rapper's seventh album, released in June, sold 3.4 million copies. No. 2 was Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" (3.1 million), and No. 3 was Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" (3 million). Globe music critic James Reed sure didn't think "Recovery" was the best album of 2010. Check out his review of the record.
