Drake's One Dance leads very close race with a 15th week at Number 1 in his sights

Plus, new entries from 5 Seconds Of Summer, Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Snakehips feat Zayn.

Is there any stopping Drake's One Dance? The Canadian rapper's huge hit is currently out in front in the race to top this week's Official Singles Chart, edging ever closer to chart history. However: he's got some competition.

Just 373 combined chart sales separate Drake from the song at Number 3 today, Calum Scott's Dancing On My Own, up one, with Perfect Strangers, from Jonas Blue feat. JP Cooper, also making a strong contest, up one to Number 2.

If Drake manages to hang on, he'll log 15 consecutive weeks at Number 1, matching Wet Wet Wet's epic stint at the top with Love Is All Around from 1994, and putting him just a week away from equalling Bryan Adams' record-breaking run of 16 straight weeks 25 years ago. Take a look at the longest stints at Number 1 in chart history.

At Number 4, Chainsmokers feat. Daya slips two spots with Don't Let Me Down and Clean Bandit feat. Louisa Johnson go back up three places to round off the Top 5 with Tears.
