Justin Bieber‘s career is no stranger to “firsts.”
At just 27-years-young, the Pop pinup boasts being the first male vocalist to sell over 100 million digital records, first male artist to debut his first six studio albums atop the Billboard 200, first male vocalist to nab four Hot 100 #1 debuts, and more.
Now, thanks to The Kid LAROI‘s latest single – ‘Stay’ – Bieber’s made another beeline into Billboard history books.
After thrilling fans with its Colin Tilley-directed music video, ‘Stay’ by LAROI and Bieber’s made an impressive #3 debut on this week’s Hot 100. Look below to see the numbers that powered the premiere.
- Streaming: 34.7 million U.S. streams
- Radio Airplay: 12.9 million audience impressions
- Digital Downloads: 12,000 sold
The figures were just enough to give Biebs his 24th career top 10 (LAROI’s third). Among male acts, Bieber now ranks #7 only behind Drake (45), Michael Jackson (30), Stevie Wonder (28), Elton John (27), Lil Wayne (25), and Elvis Presley (25) on the all-time list of ‘most top 10s.’
More importantly, ‘Stay’ comes as Justin’s 100th Hot 100 entry – making him the youngest artist in history and first non-American male vocalist to achieve such.
