Eminem-The Slim Shady LP
United States- Eminem already had records released before this LP but this one can be considered as his breakthrough album. It was a hit number 2 album and was even gifted with certification of 5x platinum by RIAA. The words “Slim Shady” was his alter ego that’s why it was the title of his album. There were about three singles released from this album, however, nothing ever reached the top 10. It has scored a top 40 hit though which was listed below:
My Name Is- #36
Only one single even charted from the album as songs such as “Role Model” and “Guilty Conscience” with another rapper Dr. Dre. His songs also charted on Billboard’s component charts.
United Kingdom- Eminem certainly achieved success from the album “The Slim Shady LP”. Aside from hitting the top 10 spot, it was even a big seller as it was awarded by BPI with 3x platinum. Three songs were also released and those songs were listed below:
My Name Is- #2
Guilty Conscience (with Dr. Dre)- #5
Eminem had two hit songs from “The Slim Shady LP”. Success waa achieved when “My Name Is” peaked at number 2. His collaboration with fellow rapper and friend Dr. Dre “Guilty Conscience” was a top 5 hit when it took the fifth spot. Nevertheless, those were the only songs which made it to the charts. “Role Model” failed to chart, perhaps it was unreleased or ineligible to enter the chart.
The biggest hit by Eminem from the album was “My Name Is”. It was the only song from the album to chart in United States, and the highest peaking song in United Kingdom. Also, it was the most known song by Eminem from the album “The Slim Shady LP”. I will be sharing the song below to enjoy and hoping you will enjoy it, just in case you are not familiar of the song.
