The Toronto rapper has held onto the top spot in the UK for 15 weeks
Drake is set to lose his grip on the UK Singles Charts after 15 weeks at Number One.
The Toronto rapper’s ‘One Dance’, which features Wizkid and Kyla, has reigned supreme at the top of the UK chart since April 15, ten days after it was released in the UK as the second single from Drake’s fourth album ‘Views’.
‘One Dance’ looks likely, however, to be knocked off the top this week by ‘Cold Water’, a collaborative single from Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ. An update released by the Official Charts Company shows that ‘Cold Water’, in its first week of release, has displaced ‘One Dance’ at the top of the single charts.
‘One Dance’ has now fallen to number five, meaning it is now behind Jonas Blue’s ‘Perfect Strangers’ (2), Chainsmokers’ ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ (3) and Calum Scott’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ (4). Before its tumble this week, ‘One Dance’ equalled Wet Wet Wet’s ‘Love Is All Around’ as the second longest number-one hit in UK chart history, only one week short of the all-time record – Bryan Adams’ 1991 single ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It for You’.
Meanwhile, ELO are set to top the album chart with their ‘All Around The World – The Very Best Of’. The Jeff Lynne-led band will notch their first UK Number One record since 1981, when they topped the charts with their ninth studio album, ‘Time’.
