Hit Featuring Nigerian Stays Top Of UK Music Chart For The 2nd Week


Drake‘s newest single, One dance, from his upcoming album, which features Wizkid, is set to top the UK singles chart for the second week, “Views From the 6”. Last  week, Wizkid broke history as the first Nigerian to ever feature on Billboard Charts: Courtesy of Drake’s One Dance. The song not only features the star boy  superstar but also Filipino R&B singer, Kyla. One Dance was actually Drake’s first-ever UK Number 1 as a headliner when it topped the charts last week, making him score his first chart-topper as a lead artist.

As much as this is great news for Wizkid, it is also a step up for the Canadian rapper who is looking up to hold on to the Number 1 spot with One Dance, as it climbs up the Official Singles Chart between its release date, which was only last week, and now. Drake previously hit Number 1 as a guest on Rihanna’s What’s My Name in 2010, but One Dance is his first as a headliner, with a little help from Wizkid and Kyla, of course.

Drake, is sure good at collaborations and all his newly collaborated singles are turning out well. The rapper, who out of love or should I say obsession for American singer, Rihanna, imprinted a tattoo of her face on his arm, may just be the next biggest act in the UK. On the Hot 100’s top 10, Drake stays atop the chart, thanks to his featured role on Rihanna’s “Work.” He also jumps from number 21 to 13 in his second week with “One Dance.” The track roars 4 to 1 on Digital Songs (119,000, up 14 percent), becoming Drake’s seventh leader on the list.

“One Dance” wins top Digital and Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100, as it also enters Radio Songs at No. 34 (33 million in airplay audience). Hopefully, in a matter of weeks, One Dance would get the winner position – number 1 on the UK Singles Chart.
