Eminem's "Revival" 8th Chart-Topping UK Album With Huge Opening Week Sales

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Congratulations to Eminem, who scoops 2017's Christmas No 1 on the UK Albums Chart with his ninth studio record Revival. The US rapper scored impressive combined sales of 132,000 to debut at the top - the year's second fastest-selling album behind Ed Sheeran's ÷, and has today been certified gold by the BPI.

Revival is Eminem's eighth consecutive UK Number 1 album, and ties a record held by ABBA and Led Zeppelin for most consecutive Number 1 records. Slim Shady's other chart-topping albums are The Marshall Mathers LP (2000), The Eminem Show (2002), Encore (2004), Curtain Call - The Hits (2005), Relapse (2009), Recovery (2010) and The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (2013).

Ed Sheeran's ÷ also generated sales of over 100,000 this week, ending the week on 121,000 at Number 2. Ed's album was the biggest physical seller this week, with 109,000 copies sold on CD and vinyl, but lost out to Eminem on downloads and streams. ÷ also tops this week's UK Vinyl Albums Chart and UK Record Store Chart.

The UK Christmas Albums Chart Top 5 is concluded by Sam Smith's The Thrill Of It All (3), Beautiful Trauma by P!nk at Number 4, and Rag'n'Bone Man holds firm at Number 5 with Human.

New entries and high climbers:
George Michael's Twenty Five rises four places to Number 11 as the first anniversary of his death on Christmas Day draws closer, while Elbow charge three positions to Number 13 with The Best Of. There's also an uplift for Jeff Lynne's ELO and their live album Wembley or Bust, up six to Number 29.
Finally, two albums make their Top 40 debuts this week. Linkin Park's One More Light - Live, a live album featuring the last vocals from the late Chester Bennington debuts at Number 32, and John Williams' Star Wars: The Last Jedi soundtrack bows at Number 39.
