On the Pop Shop Podcast, we talk about Bieber's collaborative history on the Hot 100, from landing big features early in his career to putting the spotlight on newer artists now.
On the latest Billboard Hot 100, Justin Bieber scores his seventh No. 1 hit with "Peaches" -- and he's not alone at the top. It's also the first Hot 100 chart-topper for featured vocalists Daniel Caesar and Giveon, who both get solo verses on the smash hit from Bieber's Billboard 200 No. 1 album Justice.
This is just the latest in Bieber's very collaborative history on the Hot 100. Of his 98 appearances on the chart, exactly half -- 49 hits -- have been alongside other artists. And we've seen his evolution from early chart appearances, when features from Usher ("Somebody to Love," "First Dance") or Ludacris ("Baby," "Around the World") helped put his songs on the map, to now, when he's the one lifting a song's profile -- most notably with Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," which tied the record at the time for most weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with help from a Bieber remix.
