Eminem's 'Kamikaze' Reaches Four Weeks at the Top Of U.K Charts
Kamikaze thus stays ahead of The Greatest Showman -- which moves back 3-2 -- also withstanding the challenge of Christine and the Queens' new album Chris. The French artist's breakthrough Chaleur Humaine entered at No. 8 in 2016 and climbed to an eventual No. 2 peak.
Living The Dream by Slash featuring Myles Kennedy, arrives at No. 4 on the new Official Charts Company survey, while modern rock veterans Suede start at No. 5 with The Blue Hour. That's the band's highest U.K. ranking since Head Music became the last of their three No. 1 albums in 1999 -- resulting on a UK chart span that now extends beyond 25 years since their self-titled debut entered at the top in 1993.
Josh Groban's Bridges and Joe Bonamassa's Redemption -- start this week at Nos. 6 and 7 respectively. Prince's demos and rarities collection Piano & A Microphone 1983 debuts at No. 12, while Wolf Alice's Visions Of A Life reappears at No. 15 after their Mercury Prize success. That represents a 670% week-on-week increase in combined units.
The Calvin Harris and Sam Smith collaboration finishes the chart week more than 6,500 combined units ahead of “Eastside” by Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid --which holds at No. 2 again, as does Kanye West & Lil Pump's “I Love It" at No. 3. The single “Happier” by Marshmello & Bastille moves up 5-4, trading places with Loud Luxury's “Body”, featuring Brando.
