New York, NY (Top40 Charts ) Drake has made a last-minute grab to claim this week's Nο 1 on the UK Singles Chart. The Canadian rapper's latest track Nice For What - surprise released last Saturday (April 7) - has been scaling the Top 40 all week and narrowly edges out last week's chart-topper, Lil Dicky and Chris Brown's Freaky Friday (2), to bag the top spot.
Nice For What is Drake's fourth Number 1 on the UK Singles Chart and second this year, following What's My Name (with Rihanna, 2010), One Dance (2016) and God's Plan (2018).

Drake also holds off strong competition from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa, whose new single One Kiss lands at Number 3, earning Calvin his 24th Top 10 and Dua her fifth. It was a close finish at the top, with just 2,096 combined sales separating this week's Top 3.

New entries and high climbers:
UK rapper B Young reaches a new peak with his breakthrough hit Jumanji, up one place to 13, while this year's winner of The Voice UK, Ruti, debuts at 14 with her winner's single, a cover of The Cranberries' 1993 hit Dreams. It's the second-highest placing for a Voice winner's single on the UK Chart, behind Stevie McCrorie's Lost Stars, which reached Number 6 in 2015.

Elsewhere, Banx & Ranx, Ella Eyre and Yxng Bane's Answerphone zooms 24 spots to Number 25, Cardi B's Be Careful vaults 45 spots to Number 27, and Nines debuts at 37 with I See You Shining - the North London rapper's first Top 40 hit.

Further down, Kylie Minogue scores her 51st Top 40 hit with Dancing at 38, Sean Paul's Mad Love ft. David Guetta and Becky G lifts five places to enter the Top 40 at 39, and Cardi B makes a second entry with I Like It ft. Bad Bunny and J Balvin at 40.
