And They Had NOTHING To Do With Instagram

Justin is being recognized for most streamed track on Spotify in one week with ‘What Do You Mean?’ at 30,723,708 streams, the most streamed album on Spotify with ‘Purpose’; 205 million times worldwide in just one week, and most simultaneous tracks on the US singles chart for the 17 he had on the Billboard Hot 100.

Bieber is also the first artist to sit in all top 3 positions simultaneously on the UK singles chart, and for the most simultaneous new entries on the US singles chart.

He’s also being honoured for having the most Twitter followers of any male, the most YouTube subscribers of any male, and the most viewed music channel on YouTube.
