Eminem’s ‘Kamikaze’ Reaches Four Weeks at the Top Of U.K Charts

Eminem moves into a fourth week at the U.K. album summit with Kamikaze.

Eminem moves into a fourth week at the U.K. album summit with Kamikaze, while “Promises” by Calvin Harris and Sam Smith does the same on the singles chart.

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.

Jess Glynne’s “All I Am” climbs 11-9 and “Falling Down” by Lil Peep and XXXTentacion is the highest new singles entry of the week at No. 10.
