Justin Bieber Breaks Billboard Records Again
Justin Bieber has been written off many times over the course of his 7 year career, but each time – much to the chagrin of respectable music lovers – the Canadian crooner keeps finding his name penciled in Billboard’s top spots (and history books).
Now, in addition to a plethora of historic achievements on charts including…
- Youngest artist to debut at #1 on the Hot 100
- Youngest artist to replace himself at #1 on the Hot 100
- Youngest male artist to earn three #1 singles from one album
- Most concurrent titles on the Hot 100 for a vocalist (17)
Get the deets below:
According to Billboard:
“…Bieber, meanwhile, becomes the first act with the top three best-selling digital downloads in a single week [thanks to Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito,’ rapper DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m the One,’ and David Guetta’s ‘2 U’].
Bieber further makes history, becoming the first artist to rank at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 concurrently on Digital Song Sales, as David Guetta‘s “2U,” featuring Bieber, launches at No. 3 on the sales tally with 72,000 first-week downloads sold (following its June 9 release)…
Bieber, meanwhile, doubles his longest Hot 100 reign. Of his four prior No. 1s, he had ruled the longest with “Sorry,” for three weeks in early 2016.”
