Eminem Becomes the Sixth Artist to Have Four Singles in the Top 20
Eminem just released his latest masterpiece “The Marshall Mathers LP 2″ earlier this week and already he has set a record. Em has landed four singles, all from the new album, in the top 20 of the Billboard 100.
He is only the sixth artist in the history of the Billboard charts to accomplish this feat and the first artist to do so since the Beatles did 49 years ago, who actually had six songs in the top 20 for two weeks strait in 1964.
Currently, Eminem’s highest charting single is “Monster” featuring Rihanna at Number 3, followed by “Berzerk” at Number 15, “Survival” at Number 16 and “Rap God” at Number 17.
Don’t expect the success to stop there though. “MMLP2″ is already on track to sell between 700,000 and 750,000 units in its opening week, way more than enough to take over that Number One spot on the Billboard 200 album charts next week.
The album has gained many positive reviews so far and having listened to it myself, I feel it’s safe to say the album deserves the praise. You can check out all four singles right here.
