According to the Official Charts Company, Drake‘s “One Dance” single featuring Kyla and Wizkid off his VIEWS album had around 4.67 million streams last week in the United Kingdom.
This is now Drizzy‘s eleventh week in the top spot of the United Kingdom singles chart and Billboard have revealed that it is also the longest-running No. 1 single in the U.K.’s digital era.
Congratulations to Drizzy Drake on another great achievement!
Just like in Los Angeles, Miami and Toronto, Rihanna brought out Drake during her “Anti World Tour” stop at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, England yesterday (June 29th).
RiRi and Drizzy performed their “Work” collaboration live together on stage. You can check out some footage of their live performance in one of the greatest cities in the world (Manny) after the jump below!
Yesterday, the 2016 Red Bull Culture Clash between Eskimo Dance, MixPak, Taylor Gang, and UKG Allstars took place at The O2 Arena in London, England.
During the MixPak team set, Popcaan (who was rocking a England soccer team jersey) debuted a new version of Drake‘s “One Dance” single, which had new vocals from the 6 God.
You can check it all out in the video after the jump below! I wonder if we will ever hear this version of “One Dance” in CDQ, or could Drizzy have just recorded it for this event only?
According to Official Charts, Drake has finally scored his first #1 as a lead music artist on the Official Singles Chart in the United Kingdom with his “One Dance” single featuring Kyla and WizKid.
After selling 72,000 a few days ago, Drizzy‘s “One Dance” song that will appear on his upcoming Views From The 6 album jumped 20 places from #21 to claim that #1 spot.
Even though this is Drizzy Drake‘s first No. 1 in the UK as a lead artist, he has been #1 before as a featured artist with Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” single back in 2011!
Kyla recently chopped it up with The FADER over the phone for an interview all about Drake‘s “One Dance” single featuring herself and Nigerian music artist Wizkid that will be appearing on the upcoming Views From The 6 album.
The UK artist spoke on how she felt when “One Dance” was released to the public, if she knew when it was going to drop, how long she had known about the collaboration, possibly shooting a music video for it, how Drizzy came across her “Do You Mind” song, what she thinks of “One Dance“, how she became credited as a feature, and more.

UK music artist Kyla recently explained to Trevor Nelson on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show in London how she ended up being featured on Drake‘s “One Dance” song, which also features Wizkid, and how she thought it was all one big April Fool’s joke.
Kyla revealed how at first Drizzy wanted to sample her “Do You Mind” collaboration with Crazy Cousinz from 2008 on his Views From The Album single before then being asked to be a feature on it.
You can read what Kyla said about the “One Dance” collabo with Drizzy Drake after the jump below, as well as listen to her original “Do You Mind” track!
According to The FADER, Drake has been teasing his upcoming Views From The 6 album in London, England. At around 8:20PM GMT today, projections of art (see above) appeared on the side of the Royal Opera House in London’s central area of Covent Garden.
Island Records, who hold the rights to Drizzy‘s music in the United Kingdom, have also confirmed to The FADER that there have been album release teases for VFT6, which is due to be released some time this month, across London.
The art is very similar to the cover art for Drizzy Drake‘s “Summer Sixteen” single, but with the black and white colors reversed. This news also comes a day after he dropped 2 songs off the project – “Pop Style” and “One Dance“!
