Dua Lipa claims her fourth UK Number 1 single with Dance The Night
Dance The Night joins Dua’s previous trio of UK chart-toppers; New Rules (2017), One Kiss with Calvin Harris (2018) and Cold Heart with Elton John (2021). Overall, it’s the first time a British female soloist has reached Number 1 in the UK in more than 12 months, since Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill last year.
Today, Dua becomes only the sixth British female solo artist to claim four Number 1 singles, pulling level with Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Geri Halliwell’s tally. Only Jess Glynne (seven Number 1s) and Cheryl (five Number 1s) have more. See the full list of British females with the most Number 1 singles.
In a statement, Dua said: "Dance The Night is Number 1 in the UK!!!! 💖💖 birthday week going strong !!! So much love to everyone listening and streaming 🎧🎧🎧"
