Eminem scores a double-triple on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (dated Sept. 23), as his greatest hits set, Curtain Call: The Hits, collects a milestone 100th week on the list with a 28-23 rise. The collection is Eminem’s second set to reach the century mark, following his third LP, 2002’s The Eminem Show, which charted for 130 weeks (the most than any other artist on the chart). The Eminem Show is also #2 most charted Hip-Hop album on Billboard 200 with 336 weeks, following #1 most charted Hip-Hop album “Curtain Call: The Hits” with 357 weeks

 

With Curtain Call reaching triple-digit territory, Eminem becomes one of only seven acts with two albums that have each claimed more than 100 weeks on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums since the chart began on Jan. 30, 1965. He joins 2Pac and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, who both have three such albums, along with Kirk Franklin, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and Sade (two each).
