Guys, guess what? The Great British public have finally seen sense and get how bloody brilliant Shawn Mendes is. 'Stitches' has only gone and knocked Justin Bieber's 'Love Yourself' off the number 1 spot in the singles chart; a feat we were starting to think was actually impossible for any artist ever.

Y'hear that, Bieber? That lad you once didn't know's just snatched your pretty pastel purple weave. Soz pal.

'Stiches' has been getting shitloads of radio play over the past few weeks, and now Shawn's managed to nab the top spot like we sort of always knew he would. The good thing? He's number 1. The bad thing? Getting tour tickets from now on's gonna be a bloody nightmare.

So yeah, el Biebo's now been knocked back down to number 2 (and he's STILL at 3 with 'Sorry') and the top 5 now looks a teeny bit like this:

1. Shawn Mendes - 'Stitches'

2. Justin Bieber - 'Love Yourself'

3. Justin Bieber - 'Sorry'

4. Adele - 'Hello'

5. One Direction - 'History' (HOORAH)

What we can take from this is that the people of this country have insanely good taste. A Shawn, JB, 1D and Adele top 5? HOW GOOD?

Let's listen to 'Stitches' all over again, shall we?

Tuuuuuuuuuuune etc.

What d'ya make of that, eh? Well chuffed for Shawn? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, if that's more your vibe. Cheers, thanks and danks (danke, sorry.)
