Miley Cyrus, Eminem and Conor Maynard have shaken up the top end of the iTunes singles chart after only a few hours on release.

The new singles from the soloists have been purchased en masse by British music fans since they were released at midnight last night.

Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Hall' currently sits at the very top of the heap, with Eminem's 'Bezerk' close behind at No2 - forcing the defending chart-topper from OneRepublic down to No3.

Conor Maynard gets his second album campaign off to a great start with 'R U Crazy' flying up to No4, and The Saturdays look set to better the disappointing performance of last hit 'Gentleman' as their new tune 'Disco Love' completes the Top 5.

Also in the Top 10, John Newman follows the No1 success of 'Love Me Again' with new cut 'Cheating', which has thus far peaked at No8 at time of writing.

The iTunes chart accounts for the vast majority of UK singles sales, which are used to compile the weekly Official UK Charts at the end of every sales week.

The final rundown takes into consideration sales from midnight on Sunday to 23:59 the following Saturday - so Eminem, Miley, Conor, The Sats and Mr Newman have to keep their momentum going for another seven days if they want to secure high placements on the official rundown.

James Blunt also has a new single out this week - 'Bonfire Heart', which has ascended to No13 on iTunes as a single, but the accompanying full EP package is atop the album list.

Do you think Miley can hold on all week?
