BILLBOARD has confirmed that EMINEM is the first artist or group to simultaneously have the #1 album and the #1 song (or digital track) for five straight weeks.
With his #1 album, “Recovery,” and #1 single "Love The Way You Lie" ft. RIHANNA, EMINEM has tallied more consecutive weeks atop both charts than any artist or group in the digital era. Additionally, the other current, EMINEM single, "Not Afraid," remains at #9 on the Digital Songs Chart.
