Eminem First Artist Since The Beatles in 1964 With Four Top 20 Hits at Same Time
Eminem has become the first artist since The Beatles in 1964 to have four simultaneous songs in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100.
“The Monster,” the rapper’s trackwith Rihanna, has debuted at #3 on the chart, where it joins “Berzerk” (#15), “Survival” (#16) and “Rap God” (#17).
Incredibly, no act has accomplished the feat since The Beatles had sixsongs in the Top 20 for two weeks in April 1964.
In recent years, artists including 50 Cent, Lil Wayne and Ludacris have been “featured” on that many Top 20 hits at once, but never as the lead performer on all of them.
His new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is expected to debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard 200.
Lorde occupies the Hot 100 top spot for a sixth consecutive week with “Royals.”
