Drake's One Dance looks to break further chart records
Published 15/07/2016 | 18:06
Drake's One Dance could soon become the biggest charts success in 25 years as it notches up its 14th consecutive week at number one.
If the Canadian rapper's successful streak continues, One Dance could beat the all-time record-holder, Bryan Adams's Everything I Do (I Do It For You), which topped the charts for 16 weeks in 1991.
Second place is held by Wet Wet Wet's 1994 single Love Is All Around, with 15 weeks.
One Dance is now tied with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, which spent a total 14 weeks at number one over a period of two releases.
But next week could bring stiff competition for Drake, as both Britney Spears and Katy Perry released new singles on Thursday.
Spears dropped Make Me ft G-Eazy as the first single from her new album, while Perry unveiled her new Rio 2016 anthem Rise.
Drake has fended off competition from The Chainsmokers's Don't Let Me Down, which came in at number two after rising up the charts, and Jonas Blue's Perfect Strangers which leapt to number three.
At number four is Calum Scott's Dancing On My Own, and This Girl by Kungs vs Cookin' On 3 Burners at number five.
Biffy Clyro have scored their second number one in the official albums chart with Ellipsis.
The band's last studio album, 2013's Opposites, was their first to hit number one in their 20-year career.
At number two is Adele's 25, with Drake's Views rising to number three, Coldplay's A Head Full Of Dreams coming in at number four and ELO's All Over The World at five.
