Drake’s latest single ‘One Dance’ has become the longest reigning No.1 since Leona Lewis.
It is nearly 9 years since Leona Lewis released her debut single after winning the X Factor in 2006 and claiming the longest No.1 with ‘Bleeding Love’. The track lasted 7 weeks at the top spot in the Autumn of 2007 but this weekend she has lost one of her only great records after Drake matched her 7 week record.
Drake has now totted up nearly 100,000 chart sales and this has cemented ‘One Dance’ as the longest reigning No.1 of 2016.
