Eminem races ahead of Paul McCartney in albums battle

Eminem is closing in on another week at the top of the albums chart, with Kamikaze outselling Paul McCartney's Egypt Station by more than 2:1.

The rapper's 10th studio LP has sold a further 25,866 copies this week according to the latest midweek charts flash. McCartney has moved 12,622 units so far to sit at No.2. It holds a slender lead over No.3 The Greatest Showman OST (11,320 sales). 

T. Rex's Gold (4,976 sales) is straight in at No.7, while there are other new entries in the Top 10 for Paul Simon's In The Blue Light (No.9, 4,564 sales) and Spiritualized's And Nothing Hurt (No.10, 4,338 sales).

In the singles chart, Promises by Calvin Harris & Sam Smith is well placed to remain in the top spot, selling 40,763 copies to lead former chart-topper Eastside (33,863 sales) by Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid. 

The highest new entry is I Love It by Kanye West & Lil Pump at No.4 on sales of 25,646, while Mark Ronson and Diplo's new project Silk City debut at No.15 with Electricity (16,202 sales), which features Dua Lipa.
