Eminem has become the first US artist to have seven consecutive number ones in the UK album chart.

The rapper topped the UK album chart on Sunday with his latest studio record, The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

But his collaboration with Rihanna, The Monster, was knocked off the top of the UK singles chart by Storm Queen's Look Right Through.

It was the first British number one for the US DJ, who remixed the underground track to make it more chart-friendly.

With Monster dropping to second, Little Mix scored the next highest new entry with Move, the first single from their upcoming second album, Salute.
