Justin Bieber leaps from No. 14 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated April 3) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a 13th total week, and for the first time since Feb. 29, 2020, thanks to his new LP Justice, which led by its biggest hit this week, "Peaches."

As previously reported, Bieber makes history as the first solo male to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart and the Billboard 200 albums chart simultaneously, as "Peaches," featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, launches atop the Hot 100 and parent LP Justice enters atop the Billboard 200.

The set opens with 154,000 equivalent album units, according to MRC Data, marking Bieber's eighth Billboard 200 No. 1. Meanwhile, 13 songs from the album appear on the Hot 100 (after two from the release previously charted).

Here's a recap of the acts that have spent the most time atop the Artist 100, dating to the chart's 2014 inception.
