Lukas Graham Loses Top Spot on Chart

Lukas Graham’s hit, “7 Years,” seemed to be destined for weeks and weeks on the top of the chart, but this isn’t the case after this week. The band from Denmark has had a hot year with this hit, but Mike Posner’s return to big time music has overtaken their hit. “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” is this week’s number one chart.

As we all expected, Justin Timberlake’s most recent hit, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” has made the move into the top 10. It has moved from 11 to seven this week and we only see it going higher and higher. Let’s take a look at the entire top 10 this week…

1. Mike Posner – I Took a Pill in Ibiza
2. Lukas Graham – 7 Years
3. Fifth Harmony f/ Ty Dolla $ign – Work From Home
4. Zayn – Pillowtalk
5. The Chainsmokers f/ Daya – Don’t Let Me Down
6. Zara Larsson & MNEK – Never Forget You
7. Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling
8. Drake f/ Wizkid & Kyla – One Dance
9. Ariana Grande – Dangerous Woman
10. G-Eazy f/ Bebe Rexha – Me Myself & I

Reliving The Eminem Show

14 years ago we were all blessed with Eminem’s fourth album, “The Eminem Show,” and little did we know we were listening to greatness. On May 21, 2002 the album came out and it hit us.

“The Eminem Show” would go on to be his third album in four years to win Best Rap Album at the Grammys and he was also nominated for Album of the Year, but would lose out to Norah Jones’ “Come Away With Me.”

Hits off “The Eminem Show” include “Cleanin’ Out My Closet,” “Without Me,” Superman,” and “Sing For the Moment.” It has sold nearly 12 million albums since its release, making it quite the successful album.
