Drake scores 13th week at number one

Culture Desk


Canadian star Drake has notched up a 13th consecutive week at number one with his single One Dance.
The song has now had the longest reign at the top of the charts since Wet Wet Wet’s Love Is All Around in 1994, reports BBC.
Only two songs have had a longer unbroken spell at the summit: Love Is All Around (15 weeks) and Bryan Adams’ Everything I Do, I Do It For You (16).
Frankie Laine’s I Believe also spent 18 weeks at number one in 1953, but his run was interrupted by two other songs.

Drake’s minimalist R&B track has dominated the charts since its release in April.
However, its success is primarily down to streaming. The song is only number 11 in this week’s sales chart – with millions of streams pushing it to
number one in the official Top 40, which combines sales and on-demand
Summery house track This Girl, by Kungs vs Cookin’ on Three Burners, is the best-selling single of the week, but only manages to make number two in the singles chart.
