publish date: 2016-07-02
Drake has the longest-running UK Number One single of the millennium with his single 'One Dance' (feat. Wizkid & Kyla).
'One Dance' is the only single since 2000 to hold the spot for more than ten weeks, as Rihanna's 2007 hit 'Umbrella' did.
It now ranks fifth ever for duration spent at Number One in the UK, following Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody', Wet Wet Wet's 'Love Is All Around', Bryan Adams' '(Everything I Do) I Do It For You' and Frankie Lane's 1953 song 'I Believe', which spent a record 18 weeks in the top spot.
Drake also has another song inside the UK Top Three – 'Too Good', his collaboration with Rihanna. Both these singles are from his April album 'Views'.
