New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
God's Plan by Drake
has secured a ninth week at No 1 on the UK Singles Chart. The Canadian's latest single joins 20 other songs in the UK Chart's 66-year history to have logged nine or more weeks at the top. God's Plan is the star's second hit to achieve this after his 2016 summer smash One Dance spent 15 weeks at the summit.

and Dan Caplen put up another good fight this week, finishing just 3,200 combined sales behind Drake
at No 2. In turn, the song has now matched an UK Chart record for the most weeks spent at No 2; These Days shares this feat with All-4-One's 1994 hit I Swear, and the 2011 single Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5
