Justin Bieber is on track to bag another smash on the Official Singles Chart this week as his new single with David Guetta sets course for this week’s highest new entry.
The collaboration, called 2U, has made a strong start on the chart since its release last Friday (June 9), currently at Number 3 on today’s Official Chart Update.
2U marks Bieber’s third collaborative single this year. His previous two, on DJ Khaled’s I’m The One (also featuring Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne) and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Despacito, both reached Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.
For Guetta, the track could this week earn him his first UK Top 10 in two years, since 2015’s Hey Mama ft. Nicki Minaj and Afrojack.
"Justin has such a unique voice and I have so much respect for his talent but also for his choices," Guetta said in a statement. "He took some risks reinventing himself lately in such a cool amazing creative way.
"I'm very proud to finally share a record with him. I feel like 2U is an incredible combination of emotion energy with a huge melody combined with edgy sounds."
Meanwhile, Despacito’s grip on the top spot looks set to hold for a sixth week, while Ariana Grande’s One Last Time is at 2.
