Justin Bieber Makes History With 17 Songs In The Hot 100 Simultaneously

Beating Drake and The Beatles.

Old listening records have been going down left and right this year. Take Adele: the singer is on pace to break the first week album sales record held by NSYNC, and she already set new standards for digital downloads and YouTube views in 48 hours with "Hello."

She's not alone: Justin Bieber has been setting his own high water marks simultaneously. Not long after breaking Spotify's first week streaming record (set recently by The Weeknd), Billboard reports that Bieber launched 17 songs onto the latest Hot 100 chart. This beats the previous record of 14 simultaneous Hot 100 hits, held by the Beatles and Drake.

Even more impressively, three of Bieber's 17 songs are in the top five: "Sorry" (No. 2), "Love Yourself" (No. 4), and "What Do You Mean" (No. 5). Only 50 Cent and the Beatles have pumped as many singles into the top five.

Find out how Bieber grew into himself, according to his collaborator Poo Bear.
