Drake looks set for a second week at No.1 on the Official Singles Chart as his latest track, In My Feelings, keeps a firm hold at the top spot.
At the halfway stage of the chart week, the rapper’s third chart-topper of 2018 is currently 3,500 combined sales ahead of its closest competition, George Ezra’s Shotgun, while Jonas Blue’s Rise ft. Jack & Jack jumps from 6 to Number 3.
Drake’s fifth overall No.1 single is thanks in part to the In My Feelings challenge – a viral dance craze that’s taking over the internet and has been attempted by the likes of Will Smith, Kevin Hart and Ciara.
