Eminem has lots to be proud of with The Marshall Mathers LP 2. His newly released eighth studio effort spawned four singles so far — "Berzerk," "Rap God," "The Monster" and "Survival" — and all are currently sitting in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts, making Em the first lead act to do so since the Beatles in 1964.
This week, the Detroit rapper's Rihanna-assisted "The Monster" charts the highest of all four of his tracks at No. 3. "Berzerk," "Survival" and "Rap God" are at No. 15, 16 and 17, respectively.
"The Monster" also earned Em his first No. 1 single on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop songs (and became Rihanna's third).
Speaking with MTV News about the Frequency-produced track last week, the 41-year-old said he knew Rih Rih was the best fit. "I thought it would be a good idea to have her on it because I think people look at us like we're both a little nuts," he said. "That's one of the things that I was telling her in making the record: I think that people look at us a little crazy."
Besides its hit singles, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is projected to sell 750,000 copies in its first week for the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
