Justin Bieber serenaded a record number of fans during his Valentine's Day TikTok livestream, drawing more than 4 million unique viewers over two broadcasts on Sunday and Monday, according to Def Jam. That makes his "Journals Live" performance the most-watched single-artist livestream ever for TikTok.
The livestream marked a few other milestones too: It was the first full-length single-artist live performance on TikTok and it was the first time Bieber had performed his 2013 project Journals.
The super-personal, R&B vibe of the fan-favorite album was a perfect fit for Valentine's Day, as evidenced by the TikTok viewership and the boost in streams after. On-demand streams of Journals' songs increased 37% in the U.S. on Feb. 14-16, according to initial reports to MRC Data. The album's collected tracks garnered 1.32 million streams on Feb. 14-16, versus 963,000 on Feb. 11-13.
