Eminem's single with 50 Cent and Dr. Dre, "Crack a Bottle," sets a new digital record.

Was there ever any question the trio's collaboration would be anything but golden? The proof is in the 418,000 download sales for its opening week, which surpasses T.I. and Rihanna's record of 335,000 for their single, "Live Your Life." For details, numbers and more info, click here.

So, is "Crack a Bottle" fantastic or what? I'd post a video but there isn't one yet. Just alot of YouTube amateurs pairing pictures with the song. But I'm curious to hear what other people think about it. To hear the song in its entirety, check out Eminem's MySpace. I've listened to it a few times and I think I'm digging it a little, but I'm not sure the lyrics are up to Eminem's usual clever standard. Here's the chorus:

"So crack a bottle, let your body waddle / Don't act like a snobby model, you just hit the lotto / O-oh o-oh, bitches hopping in my Tahoe / Got one riding shotgun, and no not one of them got gloves / Now wheres the rubbers? Whose got the rubbers? / I noticed theres so many of them, and theres really not that many of us / and ladies love us and my posses kicking up dust / Its on till the break of dawn/ and were starting this party from dus"

What do you think?
