Chart Check [Hot 100]: Justin Bieber Breaks Billboard Records Again

Published: Thursday 22nd Jun 2017 by Rashad

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)

…Beliebers have helped the chart-topper nab another historic achievement (one we foresaw here).

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.”

Look to see who joins Biebs in the top 25 on this week’s refreshed ‘Chart Check’:

    All I can is laugh at this generations taste in music. Justin Bieber, really? How the hell do you allow this wack ass snowflake (who should have been over by 2012) to remain relevant for this long? In a minute, he will have hung around long enough to be considered a veteran and therefore getting icon status. Millennials made the clown who sang “Baby…Baby…Baby…Oh…” an icon. Congrats.

      In the days of pre-social media and pre-iTunes, Bieber’s 15 minutes would have been over soon after “Baby.” Tumblr, VEVO and Spotify is keeping these “guilty pleasure” pop tarts around longer. If people still had to call radio stations or drive to the record store to hear or buy what’s currently on the charts, 90% of them wouldn’t be there.

    These “records” sound so silly. It seems that today’s generation of musical “talent” only cares of making (or breaking) records rather than making music that williams outlast their soon-to-be-over careers.
