Justin Bieber sets new Billboard record
Justin Bieber is on a roll following the hugely successful release of his latest album, Purpose.
Purpose sold over 650,000 units in its first week, the biggest opening of the year so far (until Adele’s 1 week tally is collated.)
The album has also seen Bieber break a record that was previously held jointly by The Beatles and Drake: Most songs on the Billboard Hot 100 at any point in time.
The previous record was 14 songs, but Bieber currently has a stunning 17 songs on the chart, easily breaking the record.
Bieber has 3 songs in the top 10: Sorry, Love Yourself and What Do You Mean?
Bieber also easily smashed The Weeknd’s record for most Spotify streams in a week, with Purpose being streamed a shattering 205 million times compared to Beauty Behind The Madness’ 77 million.
