Eminem Retakes Top Selling Veteran Album in Britain

by VVN Music

It was a short stay for Justin Timberlake but his new Man of the Woods has dropped from 2 to 8 on this week's British Albums chart.

That opens the way for Eminem to retake the top selling album by a veteran artist which he has held for eight of the nine weeks that it's been in release.  The album falls from 6 to 7.

A new release of the 2014 album Greatest Hits: The Best of Al Green brought the set to the charts for the first time at number 52. Three other Al Green collection had previously charted in Britain with both 1975's Greatest Hits and 2002's Love: The Essential Al Green peaking at 18.

Toto premier at 64 with 40 Trips Around the Sun, their new compilation. Though they've released numerous hits sets over the years, this is the first to chart in England.

The soundtrack to The Greatest Showman is now in its sixth week at number 1 in the U.K. followed by Ed Sheeran's Divide, the Wombat's Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, Mist's Diamonds in the Dirt and Fredo's Tables Turn.

Drake is at the top of the Singles chart for the fourth straight week with "God's Plan" followed by "These Days" by Rudimental, Jess Glynne and Macklemore, "This is Me" from The Greatest Showman, "IDGAF" by Dua Lipa and "Barking" by Ramz.

Justin Timberlake has the highest charting single by a veteran artist with "Say Something" featuring Chris Stapleton.  It drops from 24 to 27.
