This is a week of a charting triumph for Marshall: he is up on the Artist Chart and Hot 100; “Curtain Call: The Hits” soared to the Top 10, “MTBMB” leapt to the Top 100, “Recovery” re-entered the chart, and “The Eminem Show” celebrates its 400 weeks on the list.
As was predicted, “Curtain Call: The Hits” ended in the Billboard 200 chart the Top 10. HitsDaily Double, however, underestimated Adele’s sales. Eminem, Dr. Dre and her were going neck to neck with slightly over 30,000 units mover over the week. The Billboard ranked the British singer higher than American rappers, so Eminem occupies No.8 and Dr. Dre No.9 on the chart, with albums released in the early 2000s. It results from a heroic leap “Curtain Call: The Hits” made from No.126.
Meanwhile, “Music to Be Murdered By” moved 35 points up and re-entered the Top 100 on its 107th charting week.
“Recovery” re-enters the Billboard 200 at No.160 after a break.
And “The Eminem Show”, which has been charting for a while, hits a 400 weeks milestone.
Meanwhile, all these victories added to Eminem getting up to No. 4 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart. Marshall moved up from No.32 of the previous week. Dr. Dre is just one step behind.
And finally, “Lose Yourself” re-enters the Billboard Hot 100 at No.40.
Of course, this boost is a consequence of Eminem’s superb performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, we know that the quality of the Eminem catalogue is exceptional, and all those thousands of new listeners who just discovered Em’s music – many, many of them are here to stay. His growing Spotify following proves that.
