Drake fails to beat Adam’s record for longest time at UK No 1


London – Hip hop artist Drake failed to topple Bryan Adams for the longest UK No. 1 single, only by a margin of seven days.
His hit single, ‘One Dance’ was positioned comfortably for fifteen weeks at number one and looked poised to take over Adams’ record of sixteen weeks for his hit song ‘Everything I do, I do it for you.’

The song was knocked off the first position by ‘Cold Water’, a collaboration between Major Lazer, MO and Justin Bieber.
Prince and Victoria Wood were still alive when Drake’s single first became number one on April 15, and his reign at the top of the charts has encompassed the entire EU referendum campaign, Leicester City’s premiership victory and the full run of the new series of Top Gear.
Ultimately, however, it proved no match for the Adams anthem, soundtrack to the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, which the singer has said he completed with co-writer Mutt Lange inside 45 minutes. ‘It was a moment that I’ve only felt a few times,’ he has said. ‘It’s the moment when you know it’s a good song, you don’t know if it’s a hit, you just know it’s good.’
