Eminem and Dr Dre albums return to the Top 10

Eminem and Dr. Dre have returned to the higher echelons of the US album charts following their Super Bowl appearance.

It’s the performance that everybody is still talking about, and the hip-hop avengers will certainly go down in NFL history. Things kicked off in epic style with Dre bringing out Snoop to burst into ‘The Next Episode’ and ‘California Love’.

The crowd at the So-Fi Stadium in Inglewood were then greeted to magic from Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar before Eminem joined Dre and Anderson .Paak for ‘Lose Yourself’ before the former N.W.A. honcho and Snoop reunited to close the show with ‘Still D.R.E.’

Marshall Mathers’ 2005 compilation album Curtain Call: The Hits has now returned to the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart in the US. It peaked at number one after its release and has now risen from 126th place to eight off the back of Shady’s Super Bowl appearance.

Last week, Curtain Call became a record-breaker in the UK after spending its 500th week in the UK chart. He has become the first hip-hop artist to ever achieve this feat, and he joys an acclaimed list alongside the likes of Fleetwood Mac, and Pink Floyd, who have also reached the 500-week landmark.

Additionally, in the States, the album also broke records as the longest-charting rap LP on the Billboard 200 back in 2017.

Meanwhile, Dre’s 2001 has also climbed from 108th to ninth in the Billboard 200.
