Not only is Eminem projected to have the 2nd highest first week sales of the year, but he currently has four songs in the top 20 of the Hot 100 which hasn’t been done since The Beatles reigned the charts in 1964. As Em’s 8th studio album just hit the shelves earlier this week, one can only wonder what records he’ll conquer next.
With Eminem’s Rihanna assisted “The Monster” rolling in at the number three spot,”Berzerk,” “Survival” and “Rap God” have staked claimed to spots 15, 16, and 17. As “The Monster” was the leading factor in Eminem’s accomplishment, the song follows behind 2010′s number one single, “The Way You Lie” crafted by Eminem again featuring Rihanna.
Back in 1964, The Beatles held not 4 but 6 spots on Bililboard’s Hot 100. For two straight weeks “She Loves You,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Please Please Me,” “Twist and Shout,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” and “I Saw Her Standing There”; all held consecutive spots on the chart.
