Sir Tom Jones has expressed his desire to work with rapper Eminem.

The Welsh crooner”s new record ‘Praise & Blame’ is already sitting in the top spot in the UK album charts mid-weeks, and is set to prevent the Detroit rapper”s Recovery from nabbing a fifth week at the top.

“I couldn”t be more proud of this album and I”m really blown away by the response from everyone – it”s great to be top of the charts with Eminem, maybe next time we could be top together,” the Mirror quoted him as saying in a statement.

If the 70-year-old succeeds, he would steal the crown from Bob Dylan, whose last album went to No 1 in the UK in 2009, at the age of 67.

In Praise & Blame, his biggest success since 1999”s Reload, Sir Tom – who is entering his sixth decade in music – covers classics by artists like Bob Dylan and John Lee Hooker.
