Justin Bieber is on top of the world right now! After his new album #Purpose debuted at #1 on Billboard 200 chart, he also broke a record that was previously held by The Beatles & Drake.
The record was held by The Beatles for more than 50 years, tallying 14 songs on the April 11, 1964 chart at the height of Beatlemania, led by “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Twist and Shout” at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. The record was then held by Drake twice this year after releasing his 2 No. 1 albums, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” and “What a Time to Be Alive” (with Future).
Bieber also has three top 5 songs in the Hot 100 (at #2, 4 & 5). This was only achieved by two other artists, The Beatles in 1964 and rapper 50 Cent in 2005. However the Beibs and the Beatles are the only artist to earn the honour as the lead artist on all three singles.
