Drake does the chart double again

The Canadian crooner is sitting pretty with 'Views' and 'One Dance'

Drake has the both the UK number one album and number one single for a second week this year, holding off Justin Timberlake and Beyonce.

It’s his sixth consecutive week at the top of the official singles chart, with his track ‘One Dance’ selling the equivalent of 105,000 copies – a shade more than JT’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ at 99,000. It’s now had the longest time at the top of any single in 2016.

Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s ‘This Is What You Came For’ has been pushed into third this week, with Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ holding at four and Mike Posner doing the same with ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’, which sits in fifth.

‘All For One’, The Stone Roses first brand new music for 21 years, meanwhile, has crept in at number 17.


Drake has also returned to snaffle the top album slot off Beyonce this week. It was tight between the two titans of R’n’B, however, with just under 800 sales between ‘Views’ and ‘Lemonade’.

Norwegian DJ Kygo is the highest new entry in third, with ‘Cloud Nine’. Last week’s top album was Radiohead’s ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, which slumps to fourth this week. Meghan Trainor’s new album ‘Thank You’ is at five. And finally, Justin Bieber’s ‘Purpose’ has at long last fallen out of the top ten, after 26 weeks there.
