Justin Bieber Breaks Record Previously Held By The Beatles
These days, Justin Bieber can’t really complain about life. His newest album Purpose debuted at number one on the Billboard charts (his sixth to do so), and his set at the 2015 American Music Awards was straight fire. Now, he’s broken an impressive record that was once held by The Beatles.
Biebs is now the record holder for having the most songs on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart in one week, according to Billboard Biz. The young crooner has 17 melodies on the chart, with the highest position being the number two slot thanks to his jam, “Sorry.”
The record was held by The Beatles, who set the former record in 1964 when 14 of their songs were on the chart all at once. Drake accomplished this feat earlier this year in both March and October, tying the record previously held by the Fab Four. This unprecedented feat that Bieber accomplished was likely due to the pop star pulling a Beyonce and releasing music videos for 17 of the 18 songs on the album.
What a time to be the Biebs.
