It's all about the music with today's installment of the record breakers in the news
We begin with the news that Calvin Harris has topped Forbes' list of the world's highest paid DJs for 2013.
The Scottish producer and songwriter reportedly earned £30m in the past 12 months for his work on the wheels of steel, putting him ahead of the likes of David Guetta, Deadmau5, Aviccii, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex.
Earlier this month, Harris scored an unprecedented ninth Top 10 hit from his 2012 album ‘18 Months’, when “Thinking About You”, featuring Ayah Marar climbed to Number 9 in the Official UK Singles Chart, setting a record for most Top 10 hits on UK singles chart from one album.
The album also features the Top 10 singles "Bounce" (featuring Kelis, 2011), "Feel So Close" (2011), "We Found Love" (Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris, 2011), "Let's Go" (featuring Ne-Yo), "We'll Be Coming Back" (featuring Example), "Sweet Nothing" (featuring Florence Welch), "Drinking from the Bottle" (featuring Tinie Tempah) and "I Need Your Love" (featuring Ellie Goulding).
To the world of hip-hop, where Eminem has revealed a brand new song, called 'Survival'.
The track is taken from his forthcoming eighth album, which will follow 2010's 'Recovery'.
Eminem, (real name Marshall Mathers III), has debuted at No.1 on the US Billboard 200 album chart six times in a row, earning him the record for most successive US albums to debut at No.1 by a solo artist.
Along with Recovery, the Detroit reaqpper has hi the top spot with The Marshall Mathers LP (2000),
The Eminem Show (2002), Encore (2004), Curtain Call - The Hits (2005), and Relapse (2009).
The remix came about after both acts performed together earlier this year at the Coachella Music Festival in California.
In 2001, R. Kelly and Jay-Z (both USA) equalled the record set by both DMX and Juvenile in 1999 for most simultaneous R&B hits, when they achieved six simultaneous entries on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
The record was later bettered three years later by rapper 50 Cent, who had nine simultaneous tracks on the chart on 10 May 2003.
