It's a must-see edition of TOTP as not only Ariana Grande but also Rihanna and Drake appear in exclusive collaborations. Grande has her own song to sing but also fills in for the super-busy Beyonce on the Coldplay track, while Rihanna takes her own vocal alongside Calvin Harris and also helps out the man of the moment Drake on a trio of his hits.

The two big stories of the week are both represented here. We show three of the vids from Beyonce's new 'visual album' (in a very rare break of the no videos rule), and the From The Vault slot is of course filled by a stone cold classic from the already much missed Prince.

It's hard for others to compete with that one-two punch, but we have a resurgent Meghan Trainor, an ebullient Little Mix, and the effervescent DNCE all trying their hardest. At number one, Drake gives a subdued, almost acapella solo performance of One Dance.

Debuts: Disturbed, Bipolar Sunshine

Little Mix - Hair

Up 12 to number 19

Disturbed - The Sound of Silence

Up 10 to number 34

Beyonce - Hold Up / Formation / Sorry
