Say what you want about Eminem’s current musical output, but one thing is for sure.. dude can sell records. Not only is The Marshall Mathers LP 2 set to have the second-biggest selling week of 2013, Em also just landed his fourth single in in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100.
With the Rihanna-assisted “The Monster” debuting at #3 this week and “Berzerk,” “Survival” and “Rap God” sitting at #15-17 respectively, Eminem becomes the first (lead) artist since The Beatles to achieve such a milestone.
In April of 1964, the legendary band actually had six songs in the Top 20, for two straight weeks. The first week consisted of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Please Please Me,” and “I Saw Her Standing There;” while the following week “Do You Want to Know a Secret” replaced “I Saw Her Standing There.” How insane is that?
