News Desk |

British singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran and Canadian pop star Justin Bieber topped the UK singles charts once again on Friday (June 28) with their duet “I Don t Care.”

The two singers beat out another duo for the top spot with Senorita by Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello and fellow Canadian singer Shawn Mendes coming in at no.2. Grime artist Stormzy remained in the charts for his hit single “Vossi Bop” at no.3, which features a cameo appearance from actor Idris Elba in its music video.

The British rapper is set to headline Glastonbury music festival on Friday (June 28) on the iconic Pyramid stage. The buoyant pop song amassed 123,825 combined sales, after being downloaded 22,000 times and streamed 13m times, said the Official Charts Company.

It takes Sheeran’s tally of number ones to six, and Bieber’s to seven, equaling acts like Kylie and U2. However, the duo didn’t manage to topple Ariana Grande’s record for the year’s biggest-selling single. Her song 7 Rings notched up 126,240 combined sales when it was released in January.
