We present a measurement of the Drell Yan differential cross-section dsigma/dm, and the double differential cross section d^2sigma/dmdY in pp collisions at 7 TeV using a dataset corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 5 fb−1 recorded at the LHC with the CMS detector. The complete cross-section measurement is reported for both the di-muon and di-electron channels. The cross-section is measured in the di-lepton invariant mass range 15 - 1500 GeV/c2 and the results are compared to theoretical predictions. The cross-section values are quoted with and without acceptance and final state radiation corrections.
