Eminem is set to top the US Billboard 200 chart this week for the seventh consecutive time, figures reveal.

The rapper's eighth album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' is conceived as a sequel to the rapper's classic 2000 album 'The Marshall Mathers LP'.

It is currently on course to land the title of the second largest sales week in the US, with music industry sources forecasting the album to sell between 700,000 and 750,000 copies by the end of the week (November 10).

The rapper is likely to only be surpassed by Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience', which sold 968,000 copies in its first week of sale in the US in March.

The year's second-biggest week is currently owned by Drake's 'Nothing Was The Same', which entered at Number One with 658,000.

All of Eminem's previous albums have reached the Number One slot except for 1999's 'The Slim Shady LP' debut, which peaked at Number Two in 1999.

Earlier today, Eminem put out a B-side from the album – a collaboration with Brooklyn rapper Buckshot titled 'Don't Front'. The track, which samples Black Moon’s 1993 single 'I Got Cha Opin', is available with each purchase of the album, Consequence Of Sound reports. Listen to it below.
