Eminem continues to break records following the release of his eighth studio album, MMLP2, as he becomes the first “lead” Hip Hop artist to land at least four songs in the top 20 of Billboards Hot 100 chart.
According to Rolling Stone, Eminem has become the first Hip Hop artist, and first overall artist since the Beatles in 1964, to have at least four songs in the top 20 of Billboards Hot 100 as a “lead” artist.
Em’s four top 20 songs are “The Monster” at No. 3, “Berzerk” at No. 15, “Survival” No. 16, and “Rap God” places at No. 17.
Eminem’s second official single, “The Monster” featuring Rihanna, from MMLP2, is also number 1 on Billboards Hot Hip-Hop/R&B chart, giving the Detroit emcee his first ever chart topper in that category.
To add, 50 Cent, T-Pain, Ludacris and Lil Wayne have also had four songs in the top 20 at the same time, but some of those hits were as featured artists, and as noted above, Eminem’s top 20 hits are his own records.
