Ariana Grande tops albums chart with Dangerous Woman

Ariana Grande has scored her first UK number one album with Dangerous Woman.

The US pop star only narrowly made it to the top of the albums chart, racking up just 600 combined charts sales more than Drake's album Views.

Grande's third studio album features collaborations with Lil Wayne, Macy Gray and Nicki Minaj, and features the singles Dangerous Woman and Into You.

But Drake will not have much to complain about, as he has secured the longest run at number one in nearly nine years, according to the Official Charts Company.

On the singles chart, the Canadian rapper is still dancing at the top - as One Dance is number one for the seventh consecutive week.

This is the longest straight stint since Leona Lewis reigned the charts in autumn 2007 with Bleeding Love.

The track, which features Wizkid and Kyla, was also the most streamed track of the week, with 6.68 million plays.

Drake soared ahead of Justin Timberlake's Can't Stop The Feeling, which remains at number two - followed by Calvin Harris and Rihanna's This Is What You Came For at three and Sia's Cheap Thrills at four.

A new top-five entry is No Money, from Swedish electro pop duo Galantis.

On the albums chart, Beyonce's Lemonade has been beaten into fourth place by former The Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft with his fifth studio album These People.

Bob Dylan's 37th studio album Fallen Angels is in at number five after it was released last Friday, also making this his 37th top 10 album.
