‘TOY’ STORY A WINNER FOR EMINEM

And Athlete sprint ahead (ho ho) to claim a Number One album...

EMINEM held off the challenge of ELVIS PRESLEY to score another UK Number One single tonight (February 6).

The rapper’s Martika-sampling ‘Like Toy Soldiers’ went straight to the top, with the re-release of Elvis’ classic ballad ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’ entering one place below. The King’s chart-topper from last week, ‘It’s Now Or Never’, falls to 14.

There were five new entries on the Top Ten, with NME ShockWaves Awards tour stars Bloc Party entering at Five with ‘So Here We Are’/’Positive Tension’.

The Top Ten is:

1. Eminem – ‘Like Toy Soldiers’

2. Elvis Presley – ‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’

3. Brian McFadden & Delta Goodrem – ‘Almost Here’

4. Ashanti – ‘Only U’

5. Bloc Party – ‘So Here We Are’/’Positive Tension’

6. Ciara feat. Petey Pablo – ‘Goodies’

7. Chemical Brothers – ‘Galvanize’

8. One World Project – ‘Grief Never Grows Old’

9. Good Charlotte – ‘I Just Wanna Live’

In the album chart, Athlete score a Number One with their second LP ‘Tourist’, just seeing off fellow sensitive Brit rockers Feeder, whose ‘Pushing The Senses’ enters at Two.
