Over its 63-year history, the Billboard Hot 100 has never experienced anything quite like Justin Bieber.
At just 27-years-young, the GRAMMY winner – already over a decade into his career – has amassed an unrivaled number of accolades on the tally which include being the youngest act to amass 100 Hot 100 hits, the only male vocalist to debut atop the tally 4 times, most top 10 debuts among male vocalists, and countless others.
As he ascended to #1 on the tally with his The Kid LAROI-shared hit, ‘Stay,’ this week (as we reported here), Bieber is now being penciled in history books for yet another insane feat!
Look inside for details.
While ‘Stay’ comes as Bieber’s eighth leader on the Hot 100, it just as importantly logs the 273rd week of his career in the top 10 (which dates back to 2010’s ‘Baby’ – his first top 10 entry).
The only other male vocalist to boast as many cumulative weeks in the chart region is Bieber’s longtime mentor Usher. As of time reported, the latter’s top 10 run lasted from 1997’s ‘You Make Me Wanna’ to 2012’s ‘Scream.’
If Bieber’s ‘Stay’ manages to stay in the top 10 next week, he will be the sole owner of fourth place for the record of ‘most career-cumulative weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10’ (among all artists). At writing, the all-time leaders are Rihanna (360 weeks), Drake (301 weeks), and Mariah Carey (288 weeks).
