Eminem performs during the 2018 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on June 9, 2018 in Manchester, Tenn.

This week in the U.K charts, Eminem's Kamikaze extends its album chart reign to three weeks, as does “Promises” by Calvin Harris and Sam Smith on the singles countdown. 

Kamikaze logs third-week combined units of 29,000, just over 5,000 ahead of Paul Weller's 14th solo studio album True Meanings -- entering the Official Charts Company survey at No. 2 and leading the way in physical sales alone.

The Greatest Showman slips 2-3 in its 37th week in the U.K. top three, while the Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again soundtrack holds it's place at No. 4. Ariana Grande's Sweetener is also steady at No. 5. 

Three titles make top ten starts, with My Mind Makes Noises -- the debut album by Manchester indie-pop quartet Pale Waves -- new at No. 8. David Guetta's 7 arrives at No. 9 and Jungle's For Ever starts at No. 10, five years after the collective's self-titled debut hit No. 7.

Calvin Harris and Sam Smith's electronic collaboration, which had 6.8 million streams across the chart week, finishes almost 6,000 combined units ahead of its nearest challenger, “Eastside” by Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid. The track holds at No. 2, as does Kanye West & Lil Pump's collaboration “I Love It” at No. 3.

Loud Luxury hold at No. 4 with “Body”, featuring Brando, while “Happier” by Marshmello & Bastille climbs again, 6-5. -- marking the DJ's third top fifth U.K. single, and Bastille's fourth.

Climbing into the new top ten are “In My Mind” by Dynoro & Gigi D'Agostino, up 14-8, and “Electricity” by Silk City (the alter ego of Mark Ronson and Diplo), which rises 15-10.
