Eminem‘s latest single “Houdini” debuts at #2 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.

As revealed by Billboard on June 10, the song garnered 48.8 million streams, along with “4 million in radio reach and 49,000 sold from its release on May 31 through June 6.” This success set the stage for Eminem’s upcoming 12th studio album, “The Death Of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce),” which is slated for a summer release.

It’s the 51-year-old Detroit entertainer’s highest charting single in more than a decade, since “The Monster,” his hit duet with Rihanna, topped the chart in 2013.

“Houdini” just missed a #1 debut, and is blocked by Morgan Wallen and Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” which spends a fourth week atop the tally.

With “Houdini,” Em secured his 23rd Hot 100 top 10 placement and further solidified his position as one of the most successful artists since the chart’s inception in 1958.

Billboard added that “Houdini” didn’t stop at the Hot 100; the track also claimed the #1 spot on Streaming Songs, marking the Detroit emcee’s third leader in this category, and Digital Song Sales, making it his 12th chart-topper. Additionally, “Houdini” climbed to #1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

The single’s music video — which is a playful callback to Eminem’s 2002 hit “Without Me” — has racked up more than 65 million views on YouTube.
