'Without Me' in pole position in the midweek charts...

Eminem’s new single ‘WITHOUT ME’, is set to debut at Number One this Sunday (May 26), according to the midweek charts.

The first single from his forthcoming album, ‘The Eminem Show’, it will almost certainly be the rap star’s third UK Number One single following ‘Stan’, and ‘The Real Slim Shady’.

The current chart toppers, ‘Popstars’ runners-up Liberty, are likely to be relegated to second position, one ahead of Atomic Kitten’s new single, ‘It’s OK’. Meanwhile the hotly tipped UK garage sensation Ms Dynamite looks set to debut inside the top ten with her single ‘It Takes More’.

Korn are looking like they will have to settle for a top twenty hit with ‘Here To Stay’ along with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club‘s ‘Spread Your Love’.

DJ Shadow, meanwhile, looks set to mark his return to the top thirty with ‘You Can’t Go Home Again’ along with Soulfly who are building on their NME support with their latest single, ‘Empty At The End’.
