Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa have clinched a new UK Singles Chart milestone with their dance-pop hit single “One Kiss.” Per an Official Charts report, the Scottish DJ icon and the British singer-songwriting sensation have earned the biggest No. 1 tally of 2018 on the chart with the up-tempo track by garnering a combined total of over 70,000 units, which represents 7.1 million streams and 22,000 downloads.
“One Kiss” effectively bumped Drake’s chart-topping hit “Nice for What” down to the No. 2 spot as it claimed the top position, just one week after it debuted at No. 3. The song marks Harris’ ninth UK No. 1 single and Lipa’s second, behind her empowering breakup single, “New Rules.” Harris is reportedly the eleventh act in music history to score nine or more No. 1 UK singles.
The lyric video for the song (which is embedded above) features couples kissing in different locations on a TV screen which appears to be sitting on a sandy beach as lyrics displayed in the chorus of the dance-friendly track reference the electric possibility of falling in love after just one kiss. Lipa sings “One kiss is all it takes/Fallin’ in love with me/Possibilities/I look like all you need.”
“One Kiss” marks Harris’ second single release for 2018, following his PARTYNEXTDOOR collaboration “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready.” His most recent album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, dropped in 2017 as his fifth studio album. It debuted at No. 2 on both the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200.
Dua Lipa has enjoyed major success with her self-titled debut album, which also dropped last year. The album hit No. 3 on the UK, Scottish and Irish Albums charts. Her UK chart-topping single “New Rules” was Lipa’s sixth single from the album. She performed the song at the 2018 BRIT Awards, where she notably won two BRIT Awards for British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act.
