The Billboard Hot 100 is a chart that ranks the best-performing singles of the United States. Its data, published by Billboard magazine and compiled by Nielsen SoundScan, is based collectively on each single's weekly physical as well as airplay. Throughout a year, Billboard will publish an annual list of the 100 most successful songs throughout that year on the Hot 100 chart based on the information. For 2002, the list was published on December 29, calculated with data from December 1, 2001 to November 30, 2002.[1]

There were only nine songs that topped the Hot 100 in 2002, the second lowest number in Billboard history. Eminem's "Lose Yourself" was the longest running #1 of the year, spending 12 weeks at #1 with eight of its weeks in 2002 and another four in 2003. Ashanti's "Foolish" and Nelly's "Dilemma" both spent 10 weeks at #1.

"Lose Yourself" also held the record for the longest rap song to stay at number one; it would eventually be tied with The Black Eyed Peas's "Boom Boom Pow" in 2009 and Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again" in 2015. All three of these songs would keep the record until Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" broke it by spending 19 weeks at #1 in 2019.

Nickelback's "How You Remind Me", which spent 4 weeks at #1 between 2001 and 2002, ended up topping the year-end list.

Ashanti has the most songs on this list. Two songs inside the Top 10, Her highest being "Foolish" which spent 10 weeks at number one and her collaboration with Fat Joe's "What's Luv" which ranked at number eight.
Eminem's "Lose Yourself was the longest running number one song of 2002, spending 12 weeks in total (8 in 2002 and 4 more weeks in 2003). The song won multiple Grammy Awards and has a massive legacy.
