Eminem and Beyonce Rule the New Year’s Music Charts

Please follow TMW on Twitter and like us on  Facebook.

Beyonce and Eminem have started the new year as they ended 2013 — on top of the U.S. charts.

Beyonce’s self-titled surprise Christmas treat album rings in 2014 as America’s top choice for a third week. Thanks to a solid year-ending 310,000 sales week, the new release has sold over one million units – in just 17 days.

She also becomes the first artist to land three consecutive 300,000-sales weeks since 2009.

One Direction move up a spot to two with Midnight Memories, while Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 also rises to three.

The British boy band celebrate another one million seller this week – five weeks after releasing Midnight Memories.

Meanwhile, Eminem and Rihanna’s The Monster rules the Hot 100 singles countdown, keeping Pitbull and Ke$ha’s Timber off the top of the chart. It gives Rihanna another countdown milestone – she becomes one of only three acts to land 51 or more weeks at number one with her 13th chart-topper. Only Mariah Carey (79) and the Beatles (59) have more weeks at the top.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top three is OneRepublic’s Counting Stars.

Justin Timberlake wants to form a teen dream supergroup featuring his ‘NSYNC bandmates and One Direction.

The veteran singers – Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick – reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards last month (Aug13) after going on extended hiatus in 2002.

Now Timberlake has suggested their comeback could be even more spectacular – he wants to form an all-boy supergroup with the five lads in One Direction.

Timberlake tells U.K. TV show Daybreak, “Really can 10 of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer… We should just form like some supergroup. It’d be hilarious.

“I haven’t seen the One Direction lads too much just because I’m constantly moving, probably at the same pace they are, but what I have seen, I think I like them. They seem grounded to me. I like that about them.”
