He’s done it again! Pop legend Justin Bieber has taken Drake’s ‘One Dance’ off the charts with his latest collaboration with Major Lazer ‘Cold Water’. After a countless 15 weeks at the top of the charts, his number one position has finally been challenged.
On landing the their first UK top hit single, Major Lazer told OfficialCharts.com: “We can’t believe we have our first Number 1 and are amazed at the support from the UK and are so thankful for the amazing team that we work with. We have a lot more coming for you this summer!”
Another week would have seen the ‘One Dance’ singer equal the record of the longest time spent at number one.
As it still stands Bryan Adams holds the title for spending the longest time at the number one spot with his smash hit single ‘Everything I Do, I Do It For You, released in 1991.
The Canadian rapper’s single will be bound to equal Wet Wet Wet’s ‘Love Is All Around’
single in 1994.
Released last Friday, Bieber and Major Lazer’s single ‘Cold Water’ is the second single to shoot straight up to number 1 on the official singles chart this year after Zayn’s debut solo single ‘Pillow Talk’ reached the top charts back in February.
Not only has the single ‘Cold Water’ taken over Drake’s number one spot, but it has also made even bigger history.
The penned track by singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran marks the first time in UK chart history that two Danish acts have topped the charts in the same year.
The year 2016 also marks the first year that four songs by Canadian artists have made number one. These include Justin Bieber’s ‘’Cold Shoulder’ and ‘Love Yourself’, as well as ‘Shawn Mendes’ smash hit single ‘Stitches’, released earlier this year.
Also in the top charts this week are Jonas Blue and JP Cooper’s’ ‘ Perfect Strangers’ at number 2, Callum Scott’s remake of ‘Dancing On My Own’, and The Chainsmokers with ‘Don’t Let Me Down’.
