Eminem Hits Fourth Week in Top Ten Albums; Diana Ross Gets Her Sixth Dance Number One

by VVN Music

For the fourth week in a row, Eminem has the biggest selling album in the U.S. by a veteran artist and it's also his fourth straight week in the overall top ten.

The Greatest Showman soundtrack remains at the top of the Albums chart followed by Ed Sheeran, G-Eazy, Brun Mars and Post Malone.  Eminem drops from just 6 to 7.

The rest of the top 20 (below) remains relatively unchanged with just a couple of new entries, none of which were actual premiers.  The Essential Michael Jackson returned to the charts at 51 while Led Zeppelin's Mothership jumps up to 92.

There are, once again, no new albums by veteran artists in the Billboard 200.
