Shawn Mendes finally ends Justin Bieber chart reign

Sorry Justin, there’s a new Canadian in town. Shawn Mendes has beaten Biebs to number one.

‘Stitches’ has knocked Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’ from the top spot by 1,500 sales after a tight tussle throughout the week.

It’s been a slow climb for Shawn, who entered the Top 100 17 weeks ago at 97 before hitting the Top 40 in December.

It’s not all bad for Biebs though, as he’s still the streaming champion, having racked up 3.72 million plays against Mendes’s 3.05 million.

He’s also still occupying number three and four with ‘Sorry’ and ‘What Do You Mean?’.

Meanwhile, 99 Souls reach a new peak, climbing four places to five with their Destiny’s Child and Brandy remix ‘Girl Is Mine’.

Finally, Craig David reaches a new high with his Big Narstie collaboration ‘When the Bassline Drops’ hopping three places to 12.
