Justin Bieber Makes Billboard Hot 100 History With 'Purpose'
The Beliebers have pulled through for Justin Bieber this week to help the 21-year-old singer break records with his new album, Purpose.
According to Billboard, the Biebs broke the record this week for most simultaneous Hot 100 hits, a record previously held by The Beatles and Drake.
With 17 songs currently on the Hot 100, Bieber tops the 14 tracks both Drake and The Beatles achieved on the list on separate dates.
The Beatles held the record for more than 50 years until Drake released his two 2015 Billboard number one albums If You're Reading This It's Too Late and What a Time to Be Alive, Billboard reports.
The Biebs is also the first artist to have three songs in the Hot 100 top five with "Sorry" at number two, "Love Yourself" at the four spot and "What Do You Mean?" at number five on the list.
He joins The Beatles as the second act to earn the honor as a lead artist on all three songs.
Of 18 total tracks on the deluxe edition of Purpose, 17 place on the chart.
The news continues a week of accomplishments for Bieber, with Purpose debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 list.
As if you haven't had the tab open for weeks, here's "Sorry" to refresh your memory:
