Eminem's biggest songs on the Official Chart

From My Name Is... to River, OfficialCharts.com reveals the rapper's biggest sellers in the UK.

Since landing his breakthrough hit in his teens, Eminem has become one of the rap's biggest international sensations. 

Having re-emerged last year after a lengthy hiatus with a scathing rap attack against Donald Trump and subsequent album, Revival, Official Charts has looked into the numbers to reveal his biggest UK hits.

Since making his debut on the worldwide stage with My Name Is, Eminem has landed 36 Top 40 singles on the Official Chart, 29 of which have gone Top 10, including an almighty nine Number 1s. 

Check out the official ranking of his 30 biggest hits at the bottom of the page, based, as always, on Official Charts Company data. First up, some highlights...

The Real Slim Shady

Eminem's first UK Number 1 arrived in the summer of 2000. The lead single from his third album The Marshall Mathers LP was co-produced by his mentor Dr. Dre and caused plenty of controversy at the time for poking fun at pop stars. The track opened with 86,000 sales to land at Number 1 (just ahead of Samantha Mumba's Gotta Tell You) and has notched up 933,000 combined sales to date, including 28.6 million streams. 

Stan

Eminem's disturbing yet gripping tale of an obsessed fan became his second chart-topping single in December 2000. The song gave Eminem's his biggest opening week for a single in the UK to date, racking up 199,000 sales in its first seven days on sale to land at Number 1. Its total combined sales now stand at 1.2 million. 

Stan is also largely responsible for thrusting featured artist Dido into the limelight. Stan's chorus takes the opening verse from her song Thank You, which went on to become a Top 5 hit six months later.

The Monster/Love The Way You Lie

When Eminem and Rihanna first teamed up in 2010 on Love The Way You Lie, the pair seemed like a natural fit for a mega hit. Their lighter-waving mid-tempo ballad struck a chord with the world, but a Number 1 seemed to evade them in the UK, logging four non-consecutive weeks at Number 2. 

While Love The Way You Lie is Eminem's biggest selling single on the Official Chart with 1.26 million downloads to date, the song ranks as Slim Shady's second biggest hit overall, lagging behind his Number 1 track when it comes to streaming.

The pair teamed up again on 2013's The Monster, this time nabbing the Number 1 spot for a single week. The song ranks at Eminem's fourth biggest single with 1.1m combined sales.  

Lose Yourself

Accompanying Eminem's first foray into major motion pictures, 8 Mile, was a killer soundtrack by the man himself. It's lead single, Lose Yourself was hit across the globe and debuted at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in December 2002 with week 1 sales of 71,000. 

As well as being the star's most successful solo single with 1.62 million combined sales (including 54m streams), Lose Yourself was also the first rap track to ever win an Oscar for Best Original Song. In January 2018, it also overtook Love The Way You Lie to become Marshall's biggest ever UK hit.

Further down the Top 30 chart, a handful of the rapper's lower charting tracks make a surprise appearance, while some of his Top 10 singles land just outside. 'Till I Collapse from his 2002 album The Eminem Show places at 15 thanks to a boost in sales in 2009, when it was used in an advert for the then-upcoming game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Elsewhere, his Drake/Kanye/Lil Wayne collaboration Forever is 17th on the list despite its Number 42 peak on the Official Chart, while the Number 90-peaking Shake That ft. Nate Dogg is 26th, placing higher that Top 10 hits such as My Life (with 50 Cent), Ass Like That and Guts Over Fear (with Sia). 

Eminem's latest single, and his ninth Number 1 River closes the chart at Number 30.
