Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber's I Don't Care narrowly beats Lil Nas X's Old Town Road to claim a fifth week at Number 1

Plus seven new entries land in this week's Top 40, including songs by Chris Brown and Drake, Mabel and Avicii.

Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber score a fifth week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart after another close battle all week with Lil Nas X. 

At Monday's midweek stage Lil Nas X's Old Town Road had overtaken Ed and Justin's I Don't Care, but the duo have clawed back to the top spot with a lead of just 1,553 combined sales.

Old Town Road was the most streamed song of the week with 8.8 million plays, while I Don't Care was the most downloaded.  

Meanwhile, this week's highest new entry goes to Chris Brown's new collaboration with Drake, No Guidance, which debuts at Number 8. It's Chris Brown 16th Top 10 and Drake's 17th.

Sigala and Becky Hill's Wish You Well scales the Top 40 for a third consecutive week, up nine places to Number 15, and Mabel opens at Number 18 with Mad Love, the latest single from her forthcoming album High Expectations. 

London rapper Mostack lands three Top 40 entries following the release of his debut album Stacko: Shine Girl ft. Stormzy hits a new peak at 13, Stinking Rich ft. Dave & J Hus is new at 19, and I'm The One with Fredo lands at 39. 

Heaven by Avicii - featuring uncredited vocals by Chris Martin - is new at 20, and Liam Gallagher's new single Shockwave opens at Number 22 and was the biggest seller of the week, taking in downloads and a 7 inch vinyl release. 

After 14 weeks inside the Top 100, AJ Tracey's Ladbroke Grove zooms 17 places to make its Top 40 debut at 26, boosted by a new remix featuring General Levy & Novelist.

Finally, Nottingham duo Young T & Bugsey score their first Official Top 40 entry with Strike A Pose ft. Aitch at Number 30.

it´s the fourth week in a row, in which the most streamed track of the week isn´t no.1 in the Main Chart. Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber have been no.1 for only a single week in Streamings Charts. Since then they were only No.2 on Streamings but no.1 In Downloads every single week, until this week, since it´s release. I Don´t care is at the top for a fifth week although Old Town Road is leading the Streamings Charts once again. It´s great to see that the most streamed song isn´t automatically No.1 in the Official Singles Charts as well.

Shame about Liam Gallaghers song not being higher. Number one seller but can’t even get in the top 20. Shows how powerful streaming is these days.

You said it.Streaming the enemy of the veteran acts whose old school fans like me hate it..it'll be interesting to see if Little Mix can end the reign of team SHE-BER(Ed SHEERAN AND JUSTIN BIEBER to you).




Despite 'Old Town Road' being ahead on Monday, I'm not surprised about 'I Don't Care' retaining its lead, but I love the Top 20 debut for 'Heaven'! :)




Lil' Who? I'm familiar with Lil' Kim (love her). haha :)




Haha, I like both for now! ;)
