Akon Takes Eminem To Number One

EMINEM is back at top of the UK singles chart after his SMACK THAT collaboration with AKON knocked Irish boyband WESTLIFE off the top spot.

ANGELIS' eponymous LP falls three places to complete to top five.

The first single, Smack That, features none other than hip hop icon, Eminem...
