Eminem’s four songs has been positioned in the top 20 of the hot 100, with this achievement he has become the first artist since the Beatles in April 1964 to place at least four songs in the top 20 of the Hot 100.
The rapper has also jagged a few more chart accomplishments with the release of his eighth studio album “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” as he has scored his first number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.
Eminem’s songs “Berzerk”, “Survival” and “Rap God” were placed at number 15, 16, 17 and “The Monster” arched highest at number three which also helped Eminem finally conquer the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.
The chart continues to be ruled by Lorde’s “Royals” which made her 17th birthday a special one. In the previous years, many artists like 50 Cent in 2005, T-Pain in 2007-08, Lil Wayne in ’08 and Ludacris in 2010 have actually had at least four tracks in the top 20 but, what made it distinguished is that they all did it as featured artists while both Eminem and the Beatles did it as lead artists.
Despite all these achievements, Eminem is once again in controversies with his latest track “Rap God” and recently at chat with Rolling Stone, Eminem addressed the criticism and his use of homophobic phrases saying that he thinks that people know his personal stance on things and the personas that he created in his music. And if someone doesn’t understand that by now, He doesn’t think there’s anything that he can do to change their mind about it.”
