Drake is on course to take Wet Wet Wet's crown for the second-longest consecutive No.1 in UK chart history.
The One Dance singer looks set to cling on to the top spot for a 15th week, equalling the reign of the Scottish band's Love Is All Around and leaving him just one week away from stealing Bryan Adams' record for current champion (Everything I Do) I Do It For You.
However, it's a close fight for the 29-year-old Canadian: just 373 combined sales separate him from Calum Scott's Dancing On My Own at No.3, while Jonas Blue feat. JP Cooper's Perfect Strangers is even closer at No.2, according to the Official Charts Company.
The Top 5 is rounded off by Chainsmokers feat. Daya with Don't Let Me Down, while Clean Bandit feat. Louisa Johnson have shot back up the charts to No.5 with Tears.
In the album charts, British soul musician Michael Kiwanuka could score his first No.1 this Friday with second album Love And Hate.
He has shot ahead of nearest rival Adele by 1,300 combined sales, which could see him earn a new personal best after his 2012 debut, Home Again, only reached No.4.
Christine And The Queens' Chaleur Humaine rises five places to No.3, while last week's No.1, Ellipsis from Biffy Clyro, drops to four.
Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams concludes the top five.
