Major Lazer’s New Song Blocks Drake From Breaking U.K. Chart Record


(AllHipHop News) Major Lazer and Justin Bieber have poured “Cold Water” on Drake’s bid to break records in the U.K. by ending his reign at the top of the pop charts.

Drake’s “One Dance” has been the nation’s number one since April, spending 15 weeks at the top.

It was narrowing in on Bryan Adams’ 16-week record when Major Lazer’s new tune ended the party on Friday.

“Cold Water” recorded 102,000 combined sales to reach the top, according to the Official Charts Company.

It’s the first U.K. number one single for Major Lazer and Bieber’s fourth.

“Perfect Strangers” by Jonas Blue featuring J.P. Cooper holds at two on the new chart, while Calum Scott’s “Dancing On My Own” rises to three.

Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down” and Drake’s former number one round out the top five.
