Justin Bieber edges ahead of DJ Sigala in UK Singles Chart race

Pop stars Justin Bieber and British DJ Sigala are currently engaged in a fierce tussle for top spot on the UK Singles Chart.

The Canadian's latest hit What Do You Mean? is back at Number One on today's Official Chart Update after being dethroned by Sigala's Easy Love last week.

However, the race for supremacy is very close, with Justin leading by just over 300 combined sales at the halfway stage.

Bieber returned to the top with What Do You Mean? a fortnight ago, capping a triumphant comeback. The song set a new record for highest first-week streams for a single at 3.2 million plays and also became his fastest selling single in the UK with a combined opening week sales total of 84,000 copies shifted.

This week's Official Albums Chart Update features a battle of the bands as Bring Me The Horizon's That's The Spirit takes on Stereophonics' Keep The Village Alive for top spot.

The fifth studio album from Bring Me The Horizon is currently out in front, but with just 1,000 copies separating them from Stereophonics at the halfway stage, it's very close.

Following their reunion earlier this year, The Libertines are heading into the Top 40 with Anthems For Doomed Youth, their first studio album in 11 years.

The Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart will be announced on Friday.
