London – American rap star Eminem scored his fifth British number one single on Sunday as his “Just Lose It” shot to the top of the charts in its first week on release, the Official UK Charts Company said.

The track is taken from Eminem’s fourth album “Encore,” due for release next week, and is one of seven new entries in this week’s British top ten.

American girl supergroup Destiny’s Child entered at number two with “Lose My Breath,” with Britney Spears new at third place with “My Prerogative.”

Also fresh in was American singer Christina Aguilera at number four with “Car Wash,” while American R&B crooner Usher’s “Confessions Part II/My Boo” debuted at number five.

Dance DJ Michael Gray was another new entry at number seven with “The Weekend” as British R&B singer Jamelia entered the charts at nine with “DJ/Stop.”

Last week’s number one, rapper Ja Rule’s “Wonderful,” fell to sixth place. Swedish DJ Eric Prydz slid to number eight from two with “Call On Me,” while American rapper Khia dropped to 10th place from number five with “My Neck My Back (Lick It).”

An easy-listening debut from pop-opera singers Il Divo topped the album charts, with the quartet’s self-titled album pushing Robbie Williams’s “Greatest Hits” down to second place.
