    Eminem First Artist Since Beatles To Have 4 Top 20 Hits Simultaneously

    Eminem narrowly edged out the Beatles to become the best selling artist of the last decade, and it seems he's still competing with the band, now matching a Billboard record previously set by the fab four. Em is the first artist to have 4 singles simultaneously rank within the Billboard top 20 since 1964, with "Berzerk," "Rap God," "Survival" and "The Monster" all charting high. It should be noted that this is for "lead" artist, and not featured.

    In music we tend to glorify the debut album, always craving the newest and shiniest thing out. The downside of that is usually we're slightly disappointed in the follow up sophomore album, possibly what led to the phenomenon known as the "sophomore slump".

    Soooo, I was assigned an article about tracing the origin of a lot of the flows in hip hop to different regions around the country. Originally, I thought that would be fairly easy to do, and to a certain extent it is, but the article really went in a different direction the more research I was doing. While there are clear regional influences in today's music, it's almost minimal in the grand scheme of things. Hip Hop as a genre was born in New York, did a lot of growing up out in California, and has even spent some formative years in places like Houston, Chicago and Miami.

    Dr. Dre had one of the more memorable ice bucket challenges we've seen thus far, and the hip hop mogul decided to pass the task on to Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem. We saw K.Dot's video earlier in the week, and now Eminem has taken the plunge-- on stage at The Monster Tour no less. That's right, Em got the very special honor of having Rihanna douse him in ice water, for which he quickly returned the favor. From the footage we've seen, it's not clear who the two stars have challenged, but chances are they've picked some high profile candidates.

    Eminem's newest collaboration with Rihanna was always expected to be huge, but this week it got a pretty surprising second wind. "The Monster" had a 123% sales increase in the last seven days, giving it the biggest sales week yet for the single, which officially dropped back in October. Apparently, the huge increase in sales can be attributed mainly to iTunes gift card purchases. The track wa spurchased a total of 433,000 times, an impressive gain on it's first and biggest sales week, which only managed to move 373,000 units.
