Eminem is closing this year on a strong note. Just days after making history on Billboard 200 chart, the Detroit rapper took the top spot on Billboard’s Artist 100 for the first time ever. His achievement this time was all thanks to his latest effort “Revival “. The album, which debuted atop Billboard 200 with 267,000 units, catapulted Em from No. 37 last week to the top spot on the chart.
The sales of the album was not the only thing that influenced his rank. The rapper also managed to chart three songs off the effort on Billboard Hot 100. They are “River” featuring Ed Sheeran , “Walk on Water” featuring Beyonce Knowles and “Believe”. Aside from Em, only four rappers hit the top spot on the chart this year. They are Jay-Z , Kendrick Lamar , Drake and Future .
