Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Eminem Makes History With 8th Consecutive #1 Album ‘Revival’

Published: Thursday 28th Dec 2017 by Rashad

‘Revival’ – the latest album from chart titan Eminem – hasn’t exactly proven itself to be an out of the box success like the rapper’s earlier releases, but that does not mean it hasn’t made some impressive strides.

As reported here, the album (his ninth) is currently sitting atop the Billboard 200 thanks to first week equivalent album sales of 267,000. Granted, the figure does represent his lowest full premiere week sales in almost 20 years, but upon hitting the chart’s summit this week, the set was greeted with some history-making news.

Details inside…

Of Eminem’s nine albums, eight of them (including ‘Revival’) reached #1 on the Billboard 200. In fact, every album he’s released since his sophomore effort – ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ (2000) – debuted at the top spot. The feat makes him the only artist in music history to have eight consecutive chart-topping albums.

It should be noted that while he is the only act to place 8 consecutive chart-toppers, there are three other acts who have had at least eight non-consecutive #1 runs with their respective album releases on the Billboard 200: Jay-Z, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.

      He really looks disturbing. yet again he gets a pass while tons and tons of other (normally women) artists get bashed on a daily basis for their phycical appearance.
