Drake is set to knock Beyonce off the top of the album charts as music fans prove they like his Views over her Lemonade.

The Canadian rapper is surging towards a double at the head of the charts with a top single and a top album.

He has broken streaming records with his single One Dance featuring Wizkid and Kyla and he is leading the charge for a double success, the Official Charts Company said.

His fourth studio collection Views is also leading the albums chart, nudging Beyonce to second place, and is currently outselling Lemonade by two copies to one.

If he continues on this streak, Drake will be the first artist to take top spot on the singles and album charts since Sam Smith in March 2015, when he stormed both charts with Lay Me Down and In The Lonely Hour.

Calvin Harris and Rihanna have surged into the single charts, with their offering This Is What You Came For taking second place in the middle of the week.

Beyonce's surprise album Lemonade has seven tracks in the top 40, with Hold Up leading the back at number five.

Sia's Cheap Thrills and Mike Posner's I Took A Pill In Ibiza make up the rest of the top five.

On the album charts The Very Best of Prince slips to number three from second position last week, while Billy Ocean's Here You Are - The Best Of looks set to enter the charts in fourth place, while Travis' Everything At Once is at five.
