Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself' has been number 1 in the UK for so long we were starting to think no song ever released between now and 2074 would ever knock it off the top spot. Turns out, though, that Shawn Mendes might be the man to manage it with his new tune 'Stitches.'
Yup, *that* Shawn Mendes. The same Shawn Mendes who once prompted Justin to ask 'who's Shawn Mendes?'
You essentially can't turn on the radio without hearing Shawn's current single (before the Camila Cabello one that's slaying Stateside and stuff, anyway); and now it's just 7000 copies or however-many-streams behind JB's 'Love Yourself' at number 3. Justin's also number 2 with 'Sorry,' 'cos he's well greedy (read: it's a very good song.)
Basically the top 5 singles currently looks a little bit like this according to the Official Charts Company's latest update:
1. Justin Bieber - 'Love Yourself'
2. Justin Bieber - 'Sorry'
3. Shawn Mendes - 'Stitches'
4. Sigala - 'Sweet Lovin''
5. Justin Bieber - 'What Do You Mean?'
So yeah, looks like 'Stitches' could be the song to end Justin's reign. FANCY THAT.
Absolute tune tbh.
