Eminem's tenth album Kamikaze did 126,993 sales plus streaming in its second week, moving it well into Gold territory.
But it didn't finish number one for the second straight week, as was predicted.
Instead, Paul McCartney's Egypt Station surged at the finish line and totaled 145,777 SPS, giving the Beatles' legend his first number one debut on the album charts on his 18th solo album.
But the week's biggest mover got its push from the most tragic of circumstances: Mac Miller's last release Swimming darted up the charts with a 65,480 SPS week following his death last Friday. That's almost exactly what it did in its first week back in early August.
Among the rap debuts of the week were Russ's Zoo with 78,651 SPS and $uicideBoy$ I Want To Die In New Orleans with 46,499.
