“One Dance”, Drake’s single, featuring Nigeria’s own singing sensation, Wizkid, is now only two weeks away from breaking the record for the longest uninterrupted reign at the top of the UK single chart, according to a BBC report.
Bryan Adams’s single Everything I Do (I Do It For You), which held the number one spot for 16 weeks in 1991, is the current record holder.
The last single to notch up 15 weeks at number one was Wet Wet Wet’s Love Is All Around, released in 1994.
One Dance owes much of its continued success to its popularity on streaming sites.
The song received 4.33 million streams this week – equivalent to 43,300 sales.
It has also been boosted by its absence from YouTube, which has prompted music fans to download or stream the song in order to hear it.
Cover versions of the song are available to listen to on the video sharing website, but Drake’s original version has yet to be uploaded by his official account.
