Eminem Triumphs Over The King

ELVIS PRESLEY fans hoping for the King's fourth UK number one this year (05) have been dealt a blow - after rapper EMINEM claimed the top spot yesterday (06FEB05).

Presley's record label are releasing his 18 number one hits this year (05) to mark the 70th anniversary of the rock 'n' roller's birth.

Presley's third number one this year (04) IT'S NOW OR NEVER was knocked from one to two by Eminem's LIKE TOY SOLDIERS, which samples 80s singer MARTIKA's hit TOY SOLDIERS.

New entries in the top five include celebrity couple BRIAN McFADDEN and DELTA GOODREM's duet ALMOST HERE and BLOC PARTY's double a-side single SO HERE WE ARE/POSITIVE TENSION.

ASHANTI's track ONLY U fell from two to four. Meanwhile, ATHLETE's second disc TOURIST went straight to number one in the album charts after being released last week (31JAN05).
