Bieber beats Beatles record

0

JUSTIN BIEBER has beaten the Beatles’ record of having the most songs in the top three for the most weeks.

The Fab Four chalked up 12 weeks with at least two songs in the top five at the same time – in 1964 and 1969 – and in five of those frames in 1964, The Beatles owned the entire top three, a world record that no other artist has accomplished – until Bieber.

The musician has been ranked in the Billboard Hot 100’s top three with two titles, ‘Despacito’ and ‘I’m the One’, for the past five weeks, accumulating 13 total weeks with two concurrent songs in the top three, surpassing The Beatles’ record.
