Eminem's comeback year of 2009 was expected to include the release of two new albums.
That turned out to be only partially true.
"Relapse," the Detroit rapper's first original studio album in more than four years, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in May and eventually went platinum.
The plan then was to release a follow-up disc, entitled "Relapse 2," in the second half of the year.
Instead, Eminem and Interscope Records announced Thursday that "Relapse 2" will drop in 2010, and a CD called "Relapse: Refill" will come out on Dec. 21.
The "Refill" album is a rerelease of "Relapse" and includes seven bonus tracks.
