Eminem- The Eminem Show / Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile: Top 10 and Top 40 Singles in US and UK

Eminem- The Eminem Show and Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile
United States- Due to the huge success of his album “The Marshall Mathers LP”, Eminem had came up to release his follow-up release which the album was “The Eminem Show” and still at its peak, a soundtrack from his movie was also released which was “Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile”. Both albums did great as “The Eminem Show” was awarded with 10x platinum, while “Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile” had gone 4x platinum. Both records even scored hit singles and the top 10 hits were listed below:
Without Me- #2
Cleaning Out My Closet- #4
Lose Yourself- #1
It shows that Eminem’ singles this time did better than the preceding album “The Marshall Mathers LP”. Three singles made it to the top 10 which was initiated by “Without Me” at number 2, “Cleaning Out My Closet” at number 4, and the number 1 hit “Lose Yourself”. The latter was awarded 5x platinum due to outstanding sales by RIAA. The album also scored top 40 hits below listed:
Superman- #15
Sing for the Moment- #14

United Kingdom- Eminem continued his success in United Kingdom with the album “The Eminem Show” for achieving 7x platinum status by BPI, and the soundtrack “Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture 8 Mile” which was awarded 2x platinum. Singles were successful too reaching top 10 with these songs:
Without Me- #1
Cleaning Out My Closet- #4
Lose Yourself- #1
Sing for the Moment- #6
Business- #6
Five singles has been big hits in UK from the two albums. The number 1 hits were two, first with “Without Me” which was certified platinum, and the “8 Mile” theme “Lose Yourself”, a 2x platinum single. Other big hits were “Cleaning Out My Closet” at number 4, and both number 6 hits “Sing for the Moment” and “Business”. No singles released peaked outside the top 10 from the two albums.

The song I would be sharing was the US number 2 and UK number 1 hit “Without Me” because of the humor it brought, and being the lead single of “The Eminem Show” album.
