    Most of the songs on this list are crap, but at least the number one song is a good one.

    • mike

      …so if another song off the album goes #1 it will miraculously turn from crap to good?

  • bruno

    can love the way you lie officially be the song of the summer so i don’t have to listen to that crapfest from katy perry anymore?

      Billboard is actually keeping a “Songs of the Summer” chart based on Hot 100 results. LTWYL is currently #4 on that list, behind OMG at #3, Airplanes at #2 and CG at #1. If Em can fend off Taio Cruz (who is this week’s biggest airplay gainer) and possibly a big debut by Lil’ Wayne and Drake next week, he may just knock them off one by one.

        You can’t hear anything, we’re all typing our comments.

    Next week, expect to see “Magic” by B.O.B. and Rivers Cuomo in the top 10 next week (moving 15-11), along with a possible big jump for Bruno Mars’ solo debut, “Just The Way You Are,” which climbed to #16 from #20.

    Why did Eminem have to ruin a great song by inviting a thug-ess like Rihanna to sing on it? Christina Aguilara or even Miley would be better than that!

    • u

      Normally I would agree with this statement, but your reasons are what keep me from doing so. Rihanna a “thug-ess”? What is that supposed to mean? So since she’s black, she’s automatically a “thug”? Please go back to watching your FOX news, you prejudiced prick.

    • @Rusty and U

      You compaint makes no sense. Eminem is a hip-hop artist and Rhianna has worked successfully with several top hip-hop stars. In spite of any vocal limitations she may have, she sounds fine on this, and is oone of the rasons why it is a #1 smash. As for “U,” why assume that Rusty hates her because she’s Black? He might as well hate Em also since he’s so immersed in a Black culture.

  • Jay

    Yes! Taylor Swift flopped…i mean dropped :)

    • whatevs

      Why do you want her to be a failure?

      • u

        Because she sucks.

  • L.solanki

    If you want to hear a good summer song check out SINK OR SWIM by a band called BAD LIEUTENANT, this song is very melodic and catchy , a good summer feeling. song

  • Maureen

    That Rihanna (and Eminem) reign just won’t let up. ;)

  • zet

  • Defacebook

    And I haven’t even heard it, nor do I want to. Eminem is a self-absorbed bore.

    • @Defacebook

      It’s a good song. You’re missing out because you think he’s a bore? What does tha have to do with it? There are a lot of singers I find boring, but at the end of the day, it’s about the song not the singer.

  • ralph

    good songs are hard to come by,those that reach for the soul and not corrupt the mind. r$b.

  • PNK

    Eminem is the new Michael Jackson. A coupla comparisons are worthy in my book.
