Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber are surging to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart worldwide, with their latest collaboration 'I Don't Care'.

Despite allegations of plagiarism, the track has surged on streaming services accumulating 4.7 million streams across the weekend.

It also achieved more digital downloads than the rest of the Top 5 combined at the “midweek” point. 

If the song keeps momentum, it'll be Ed Sheeran’s sixth UK Number 1 and Justin’s seventh chart-topper.
