Drake’s “God’s Plan” (Cash Money/Republic Records) made it to chart heaven last week with a No. 1 bow on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, his third best-seller in that market. Based on midweek data, Drizzy should stay at the summit a second week.
“God’s Plan,” lifted from the Canadian rapper’s Scary Hours EP, leads the Official Singles Chart Update with South London rapper Ramz holding at No. 2 with "Barking" (Polydor) and Eminem’s “River” (Interscope) featuring Ed Sheeran again at No. 3.
Drake appears twice more on the midweek top 40, on Migos’ “Walk It Talk It”, from their new album Culture II (at No. 30 via Motown/Quality Control), and with “Diplomatic Immunity” (at No. 36), the other track from Scary Hours.
