FUSE TV - Eminem Is First Lead Artist Since Beatles to Score 4 Top 20 Hits

Apparently there were a few things left on earth that Eminem hadn't accomplished—but don't worry, he just did. Marshall Mathers became the first lead artist to score four Top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 since the Beatles did so in 1964.

Thanks to "Berzerk," "Rap God," "Survival" and his No. 3 hit "The Monster" featuring Rihanna, Slim Shady matched a feat not seen in nearly 50 years of chart history. While other artists have managed to be on multiple Top 20 hits since then, it's only been as featured artists—none have done so relying solely on their own singles.

FYI, Em didn't break the Beatles' record, however, because they actually placed six singles in the Top 20 back in 1964. Hey, that's why they called it Beatlemania.

Shockingly, Mathers also scored his first No. 1 hit on the R&B/Hip Hop charts thanks to "The Monster." It's hard to believe, but none of his previous megahits ever topped the rap charts before.

We'll have to wait until next week to see what sales figures are for The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but given this info, we're guessing he'll have another reason to celebrate when those numbers come out.
