Justin Bieber Shatters Hot 100 Record Set by The Beatles 51 Years Ago

With 17 out of 18 songs off his 'Purpose' album on Billboard Hot 100, the Biebs has more hits charting simultaneously on the list than the Fab Four and Drake.

AceShowbiz - Here's another reason to buy Justin Bieber's "Purpose" if you still don't have it on your shelf. After sending the album to the top spot of Billboard 200 with the biggest sales week of 2015, the Canadian superstar now breaks a long-standing Billboard Hot 100 record set by The Beatles more than five decades ago.

According to Billboard, the Biebs now has 17 out of 18 songs from the album's deluxe edition on the December 5 edition of the all-genre singles chart. By doing so, he beats out The Beatles who achieved the feat back in 1964 with 14 Hot 100 entries.

Before Bieber and his "Purpose" shattered their record, the Fab Four held the mark for more than 50 years until Drake tied the record twice this year with the cuts off February's "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" and September's "What a Time to Be Alive".

That's not all for Bieber. He's also become the third artist ever (and only second solo act) to have three hits simultaneously charting in the top 5. His "Sorry" is sitting at No. 2 and is followed by "Love Yourself" that debuts at No. 4 and "What Do You Mean" which bows at No. 5. The Beatles and 50 Cent were the other two acts to have accomplished that.
