Eminem tops the U.K. music charts for the first time since 2006
Rapper Eminem has scored his first number one on the U.K. singles chart since 2006 with his new Rihanna collaboration, The Monster.
The track, from his new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, also marks the seventh time in seven years Rihanna has debuted at the top of the pop charts, joining only The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
Last week's number one, Lorde's Royals, fell to number two and Fat Boy Slim's Eat Sleep Rave Repeat came in at number three, giving the DJ his first top 10 hit in 12 years.
One Direction's Story Of My Life and One Republic's Counting Stars round out the new top five.
In the albums chart, Arcade Fire's Reflektor knocked Katy Perry's Prism into second, while James Blunt's Moon Landing, Pure Heroine by Lorde, and Arctic Monkeys' AM took third, fourth and fifth place, respectively.
