‘River’ Gives Eminem Ninth U.K. No. 1 Single

| January 21, 2018


Eminem’s “River” (Interscope/Universal), featuring Ed Sheeran, gives the rapper his ninth U.K. No. 1 single, climbing 2-1. The soundtrack of The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner) starts a second week atop the album chart. The Official Charts Company also reports a 986 percent week-on-week surge in combined unit sales of the Cranberries’ album catalog, following the news of vocalist Dolores O’Riordon’s passing.

Eminem’s tally of chart-topping U.K. singles, which began in 2000 with “The Real Slim Shady,” is a record for a rapper. “River” climbs to the top as south London rapper Ramz’ “Barking” (Polydor/Universal) climbs again, 4-2. Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Asylum/Warner), No. 1 on the singles chart for the last six weeks, falls to No. 3.

“I Miss You” (Atlantic/Warner Music) by Clean Bandit featuring Julia Michaels climbs again 5-4, and Bruno Mars’ “Finesse” (Atlantic/Warner), featuring Cardi B, improves two places on its No. 7 debut last week. Camila Cabello’s “Never Be The Same” (Epic/Syco Music/Sony) climbs 29-7 and “Tip Toe” (Warner Bros./Warner Music) by Jason Derulo featuring French Montana is up 12-8, its first top 10 appearance in its tenth chart week.
