(Story reported by Silvio Pietroluongo for ABC

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Rapper Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" led Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart for a fourth week on Wednesday, holding off a strong No. 3 debut by Taylor Swift.

"Mine," the first single from the country-pop starlet's upcoming album, was rush-released to digital retailers late last Wednesday after a low-quality version leaked online.

Even with just four full days of sales, it managed to sell 297,000 downloads, the fourth-best of the year and eighth-best ever. The song topped Billboard's Digital Songs tally, sending Eminem down to No. 2 with 281,000.
