(AllHipHopNews) It appears Shady’s back. According to Billboard, Eminem’s new single “Berzerk” sold 362,000 downloads in its first week. The total was enough to land Em in the number 3 spot on the Hot 100 chart behind Katy Perry’s “Roar” at 1 and Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” at 2.
“Berzerk” also places Eminem in a tie with Lil Wayne for most Top 10 debuts by a male artist with 10. It’s his 15th Top 10 single overall. Em now only trails Wayne and Ludacris (18) and Jay Z (20) among rappers all time in that category.
Speaking of Jay, his “Holy Grail” collaboration with Justin Timberlake jumps back into the top 5 on the chart thanks in part to the debut of the song’s video on YouTube. The Magna Carta Holy Grail track rises from 6 to 5.
Eminem’s next album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is scheduled for release November 5th.
