Drake lands second week on top of U.K. chart as young cellist makes album history


Drake has scored a second week on top of the U.K. singles chart with his new track God’s Plan.
God’s Plan, one of two songs he released on his Scary Hours EP last month (Jan18), was streamed an incredible 7.6 million times by Brits this week, topping Friday’s (02Feb18) Official Charts Company rundown.

Rising London hip-hop star Ramz stays at two with Barking, while Eminem and Ed Sheeran’s collaboration River remains at number three.

Dua Lipa’s IDGAF is also static at four, ahead of Craig David’s I Know You, which climbs into the top five.

The soundtrack to movie musical The Greatest Showman tops the album chart for a fourth week, denying Craig David his third number one record.

The British R&B star’s collection, The Time Is Now, is at two, ahead of Ed Sheeran’s smash hit album ÷ (divide) in third spot.

U.S. rap group Migos debut at four with Culture II, while Eminem’s Revival completes the top five.
And 18-year-old classical musician Sheku Kanneh-Mason has become the youngest cellist to hit the top 20. His album Inspiration, which features works by Shostakovich and Leonard Cohen, enters the new album chart at 18.

“As a classical cellist, I can’t quite believe I’ve made the Top 20 in the pop charts with my first ever album!” he tells the BBC. “I hope the pieces on this album inspire others the way they’ve inspired me.”
