It's SO CLOSE Between Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber At The Top Of The Charts!
This week's chart race is RIDICULOUSLY close. On Friday, Shawn Mendes took over the No.1 spot from Justin Bieber on the Official UK Download Chart but didn't quite manage it in the Official UK Singles Chart.
Today he's finally done it though as 'Stitches' has overtaken Biebs' 'Love Yourself' in the midweeks! Can he hold onto the lead until Friday?In today's Official Chart Update, Shawn is just 621 combined sales ahead of the mighty Justin, who's 'Love Yourself' has slipped to No.2.
Earlier this month, Bieber set a brand new Official Charts record when he occupied the ENTIRE Top 3 singles so is wouldn't be a stretch for him to reclaim the lead before Friday.

One Direction continue to climb with 'History' now placing at No.5, while 99 Souls also climbs a few spots to No.6 with 'The Girl Is Mine'.
Both slipping three places this week are JB's 'What Do You Mean' at No.7 and Sigala's 'Sweet Lovin'' at No.8 while Snakehips could earn his first UK Top 10 hit with 'All My Friends' Ft. Tinashe & Chance The Rapper sneaking in at No.9.
