Eminem’s ‘Love the Way You Lie’ No. 1 for Fifth Straight Week
Eminem's 'Recovery' passed the double platinum mark this week to become the best-selling rap album this year. But, he's got another milestone on his hand: 'Love the Way You Lie,' featuring Rihanna, sits atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth consecutive week as 'Recovery' reigns over the Billboard 200 for its sixth week.
While 'Recovery' is the first album since Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed a Dream' to hold onto the top of the charts for six weeks, 'Love the Way You Lie' continues to hold on strong despite a 9 percent decrease to 254,000 downloads sold, keeping the hit atop the Digital Songs chart. Over on the Radio chart, the track also dominates for a second week with 150 million impressions.
Other notables on the chart this week include Taio Cruz's 'Dynamite,' which holds strong at No. 2 for the second consecutive week. Mike Posner's 'Cooler Than Me' moves up a spot from 7 to 6, while Usher's 'DJ Got Us Falling in Love' rises one spot to No. 7 and B.o.B's 'Airplanes' featuring Hayley Williams drops three spots to No. 9.
