Eminem Back to Number 1 Spot Thanks to ‘Kamikaze’
Now with 72 career entries, Eminem ties Future’s total and passes The Beatles sum as he earns his ninth number 1. Kamikaze opened with 434,000 equivalent album units as the album debuted in the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The rapper had 2 songs in the top 10 on the Hot 100, earning Eminem his 18th and 19th top 10s on the chart. The last time he had appeared in the top 10 was in 2014 with “The Monster” featuring Rihanna. Most noteworthy, the Detroit MC becomes the ninth act to tally at least 10 songs on the Hot 100 in a single week in 2018. He joins Cardi B, J. Cole, Logic, Drake, Post Malone, Migos, Travis Scott, and Ariana Grande in this group.
Eminem Gets his First Number 1 Debut on Streaming Songs Chart
As Eminem’s new album stormed Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart, the rapper was able to grab the top spot on the September 15th dated list. “Lucky You” featuring Joyner Lucas bows at number 1 as the rapper’s second leader on the chart. The song earns 42.2 million streams in the week ending in September 6th, according to Nielsen Music.
However, in total, four songs from Kamikaze have debuted in the top 10 of Streaming Songs. In addition to “Lucky You”, “The Ringer” is posted up at number 5 with 31.7 million streams. “Fall” is sitting comfortable at number 7 with 31.8 million, and the title track is at number 8 with 26.2 million. Most noteworthy, “Ringer” leads “Fall” despite more streams for the latter due to weighting changes on the chart. These changes value paid streams over ad-supported. A portion of the data from “Fall” comes from a YouTube video released September 4th.
Eminem has never debuted inside the top 10 of Streaming Songs with any song. The closest he had come was with “Headlights” featuring Nate Ruess in May 2014. It’s safe to say that the rapper is still able to climb the charts like he once has and we will be keeping an eye on his future positions.
