Talk about a really, really, really broken record. Eminem, that, um, artist with a troubled wife and lawsuit-happy mother, has at least one thing to celebrate nowadays: His “The Marshall Mathers LP” topped the Billboard album charts for the seventh consecutive week.
Eminem held off newcomer “Ryde or Die Vol. 11,” yet another Ruff Ryders/Interscope compilation, which bowed in at No. 2.
Rounding out the Top Five: Britney Spears’ “Oops!…I Did It Again”; rapper Nelly’s “Country Grammar”; and ’N Sync’s “No Strings Attached.”
Over on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, matchbox twenty’s “Bent” jumped from the No. 6 spot to land atop the chart, displacing last week’s singles champ, Vertical Horizon’s “Everything You Want.”
