Encore is the fifth studio album by Eminem. Its release was set for November 16, 2004, but was moved up to November 12 after the album was leaked to the Internet. Encore sold 710,000 copies in its first three days. It was certified quadruple-platinum there in mid-December. As of June 25, 2010, it had sold 5.2 million copies in the US. Nine months after its release, worldwide sales of the album stood at 11 million copies. Critical reception was generally positive. However, most critics and fans alike did note the subpar quality of the lyrics, which were more simplistic when compared to previous albums. Eminem himself stated in an interview that, the album wasn't his best work. The album was nominated for three Grammys at the 48th Annual Grammy Awards including for Best Rap Album but lost to Kanye West's Late Registration. The album made digital history in becoming the first album to sell 10,000 digital copies in one week. The song "Like Toy Soldiers" is his second song that samples "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" by Paul Simon after "Murder, Murder" on The Slim Shady EP.
