The Toronto rapper had spent 15 weeks at the top of the chart with his single ‘One Dance’, the second longest run in chart history.
‘Cold Water’ is the first UK Number One for Diplo‘s group. They told the Official Charts Company: “We can’t believe we have our first Number 1 and are amazed at the support from the UK and are so thankful for the amazing Because team that we work Major Lazer records with. We have a lot more for you coming for you this summer!”
The song is only the second song released this year to go straight to the top of the charts, following Zayn Malik topping the charts with ‘Pillowtalk’ in February.
In the Official UK Albums Chart, Jeff Lynne’s ELO scored their first UK Number One in 35 years with ‘All Over The World – The Very Best Of’.
The album was originally released in 2005 and charted at Number Six. It has now surpassed 1,000,000 sales following the band’s performance at Glastonbury last month.
Speaking to the Official Charts Company, Lynne said: “Thirty five years between Number 1 albums! I’m totally amazed. Thanks to everyone that made it possible.”
Elsewhere in the Albums Chart, Christine & The Queens‘ album ‘Chaleur Humaine’ enters at Number Two, ahead of Drake’s ‘Views’ (Number Three), Adele‘s ’25’ (Number Four) and Coldplay‘s ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ (Number Five).
