Bieber Fever reaches its peak on the social media-based survey.

The release of Justin Bieber’s Purpose album prompts his takeover of the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart (dated Nov. 28), where the singer earns 12 entries on the tally -- the most concurrently charting titles on the list since the chart launched in May 2014. Purpose was released on Nov. 13 and is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Dec. 5.

“Sorry” leads the superstar’s Top Tracks chart monopoly, clocking a fourth straight frame in charge. Three album cuts -- “Love Yourself,” “The Feeling” featuring Halsey and “Children” -- debut at Nos. 2, 3 and 5, respectively, while lead single “What Do You Mean?” rises 5-4 in its 16th week. The song previously scored six weeks atop the survey in September and October.

Bieber posts six additional debuts on the chart (Nos. 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14), likely fueled by the singer issuing a music video for each Purpose track on Nov. 14.

Here are Justin Bieber’s 12 songs on the latest Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart:
Song, Peak Position
“Sorry,” No. 1 (four weeks at No. 1)
“Love Yourself” (No. 2)
“The Feeling,” featuring Halsey (No. 3)

“Life Is Worth Living” (No. 12)
“No Pressure,” featuring Big Sean (No. 13)
“We Are,” featuring Nas (No. 14)
“I’ll Show You” (No. 22)

Purpose also generated huge social traction for Bieber, whose Twitter mentions soared to 2.8 million for the week ending Nov. 15, according to Next Big Sound, a surge of 65 percent. Twitter reactions also climb, reaching 3.9 million for the week, up 86 percent. The social flurry lifts Bieber to a career-first week at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart in his 71st week on the tally. He also maintains his No. 1 rank on the Social 50 chart for a 19th consecutive frame.
