Eminem has bagged his seventh consecutive UK Number One Album with ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’.
The album, a sequel-of-sorts to his breakthrough album, 2000’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’, makes him the first American to ever achieve seven back-to-back UK Number Ones. He’s now par with The Beatles, who achieved the magic seven from 1963-1966, and one behind Led Zeppelin and Abba, who are on eight, reports the Official Charts Company.
2012 X Factor winner James Arthur‘s self-titled debut album is at Number Two, Tinie Tempah‘s ‘Demonstration’ is at Number Three, Andre Rieu & Johann Strauss Orchestra’s ‘Music Of The Night’ is at Number Four and ‘Saturday Night At The Movies’ by The Overtones completes this week’s Top 5.
Meanwhile, in the Official UK Singles Chart, it’s not all good news for Eminem this week as Storm Queen’s ‘Look Right Through You’ knocks his collaboration with Rihanna, ‘The Monster’, off the top spot.
The track, by the Brooklyn-based DJ, outsold Slim Shady by nearly 9,500 copies, shifting the rapper’s song down one place to Number Two. Little Mix are new in at Number Three with ‘Move’, Lorde is down two place to Number Four with ‘Royals’ and ‘Story Of My Life’ by One Direction is at Number Five.
