Justin Bieber leads this week’s Official Singles Chart yet again, as Love Yourself logs a second week at Number 1.
The track, co-written by Ed Sheeran, notched up combined sales of 114,000 and fend off strong competition from his own track Sorry, which holds at Number 2.
Last week, Justin achieved the rare feat of replacing himself at the top of the Official Singles Chart, but his unmoved positions this week make him the first artist ever to knock himself off the top spot with both songs holding at 1 and 2 for two consecutive weeks.
This week’s highest new entry goes to Sigala’s Sweet Lovin’, which debuts at Number 3. The track, which features vocals from Bryn Christopher, follows Easy Love, which hit Number 1 back in September and is certified Gold by the BPI this week for combined sales of over 400,000.
Rounding off this week’s Top 5 are Adele’s Hello (4) and Grace and G-Eazy’s You Don’t Own Me, which logs a second week at Number 5.
