It’s a rap battle on the U.K.’s midweek singles chart as Eminem and Ramz go toe-to-toe for the title.
Eminem’s current chart leader "River" (Interscope), featuring Ed Sheeran, takes the lead on the Official Singles Chart Update though London rapper Ramz is close behind in second place with “Barking” (Polydor). According to the Official Charts Company, the coming days could see “one of the tightest chart races in recent memory” as Eminem leads on downloads and Ramz has the advantage on streaming.
The newly-anointed BBC Sound Of 2018 champ Sigrid is at No. 3 with “Strangers” (Island) following the Norwegian newcomer’s appearance last Friday on The Graham Norton Show. “Strangers” is outpacing “River” and “Barking” in downloads at the halfway stage.
