The New Paper
1 September 2016
Pop star Justin Bieber landed eight records in the Guinness World Records 2017, thanks to the worldwide success of last year's album Purpose.
The 22-year-old held the record for most streamed track on Spotify in one week for hit single What Do You Mean? and the most streamed album on Spotify in one week for Purpose.
He also bagged records for most simultaneous tracks on US singles chart, most simultaneous new entries in Hot 100 by a solo artist, most viewed channel on YouTube for an individual, most subscribers on YouTube for a musician (male), most followers on Twitter (male) and first act to occupy all top three positions simultaneously on the UK singles chart.
