Drake has secured the longest running number one of the digital age with One Dance.

The track, featuring Wizkid and Kyla, is sitting at the top of the UK Singles Chart for the 11th week.

The Canadian rapper has now moved ahead of Bajan singer Rihanna, who enjoyed a 10-week reign with Umbrella in 2007.

It is another digital milestone since the introduction of legal download services in 2004.

One Dance held off a mid-week challenge from French producer Kungs to claim a notable feat for the 29-year-old star.

Just over 3,000 combined chart sales separated Drake from Kungs vs Cookin' On 3 Burners' This Girl, according to the Official Charts Company.

Drake also had the most streamed track of the week with 4.67 million listens over the last seven days.

Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop The Feeling remains at number three, while Calvin Harris and Rihanna's This Is What You Came For is one place below.

Drake and Rihanna both make another appearance in the top five with their collaboration Too Good, which is also a non-mover.

Radiohead have won their battle against Red Hot Chili Peppers on the Official Albums Chart.

The band's ninth studio album A Moon Shaped Pool is at number one following the much-anticipated physical release.

Radiohead's sixth UK chart-topper is also the best-selling vinyl record of the week.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' The Getaway is the highest new entry at number two.

Rick Astley, last week's number one, is at number three with 50.

One place below him is Jake Bugg's third studio album entitled On My One, while Coldplay round out the top five.

Following their four sold-out shows at Wembley Arena, latest release A Head Full of Dreams climbs one place on the chart.
