'Peaches' also moves Bieber closer to Drake's record for the most leaders among Canadian artists.
As "Peaches" debuts atop the Hot 100 (dated April 3), the song is the chart's first No. 1 by two soloists from Canada: Bieber and featured artist Daniel Caesar, both from Ontario. (Giveon, also featured on the song, is from the United States.)
Not that Canadians are unfamiliar with the Hot 100's northernmost spot. "Peaches" is Bieber's seventh No. 1 on the chart, lifting him to within one of Drake's record among Canadian acts. Drake notched his eighth leader just two weeks earlier with the No. 1 launch of "What's Next."
