Following the Super Bowl performance, Eminem is celebrating a monumental career achievement: his greatest hits album, Curtain Call: The Hits, is the first hip-hop album to spend 500 weeks (and counting) on the United Kingdom charts.
Originally released back in December 2005 (debuting at No. 1 on UK charts), the record hasn’t left the album charts in the 17 years since. Even more notably, it has primarily remained in the Top 50 albums of the charts each week.
Curtain Call is charting at Number 8 this week in the UK. The 8x Platinum album last appeared in the Top 10 back in 2006.
