Justin Bieber First Singer In History To Hold Top 3 Spots On UK Singles Chart
Justin Bieber has once again made history. On Friday, the superstar became the first singer to hold the top three spots on the U.K. Top 40 Singles chart.
The new rankings were unveiled with “Love Yourself” at number one. “Sorry” is at number two. And “What Do You Mean?” moved up one spot from last week to take the third position.
All three tracks, of course, are from Bieber’s album, Purpose. When the record was released in November on the same day as One Direction’s Made In The A.M., it had to settle for second place in the U.K., though it took number one in the U.S. Now Bieber has shown domination when it comes to individual songs.
As Gossip Cop reported, Bieber also made history here in the States last November when he broke The Beatles’ Billboard Hot 100 Record with a whopping 17 songs on the chart at the same time. The iconic band set the record with 14 back in 1964, though Drake actually tied that amount twice last year. Bieber seemed to hint to his latest accomplishment on Twitter early Friday when he tweeted “1 2 3.”
The news comes just a few weeks after the performer actually encouraged fans to buy a charity single over his own so that a British choir could have the number one spot on the U.K. Top 40 Singles chart released on Christmas. Not surprisingly, Bieber’s “Love Yourself” reclaimed its throne the week after. And clearly, it’s still holding on tight, now with added company.
