Eminem's Kamikaze scores second week at Number 1 Official Albums Chart

New albums from Paul McCartney, Paul Simon and Spiritualized are big entries on this week's Top 40.

Eminem extends his reign at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart this week with his latest collection Kamikaze. 

The rapper's tenth studio album was this week's most downloaded and streamed record, with 51% of its sales total coming from streams.

Last week Kamikaze earned Eminem the title of having the most consecutive chart-topping albums in UK chart history, with his last nine records landing at the top.

This week's highest new entry goes to Paul McCartney, whose 18th solo album Egypt Station debuts at Number 3 and was the week's best-selling record in physical formats.
