Justin Bieber just made the latest edition of the Guinness World Records book, and, no, it’s not for the artist who left behind the most fans when he split Instagram. According to Guinness, Bieber is now the proud owner of eight new titles thanks to his smash success on Spotify and his chart domination.
The Guinness World Records 2017 edition honors Bieber, 22, for landing the most streamed track on Spotify in one week (“What Do You Mean?,” 30,723,708 times), as well as the most streamed album on Spotify in one week (Purpose, 205 million times), the most simultaneous tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 (17) in December 2015 and for being the first act to fill three top slots simultaneously on the U.K. singles chart: (“Love Yourself” (No. 1), “Sorry” (No. 2) and “What Do You Mean?” (No. 3).
He was also noticed for having the most simultaneous new entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (13), the most Twitter followers (82,235,563) and YouTube subscribers of any male (20,711,202) and the most viewed YouTube music channel (10,478,651,389).
