Justin Bieber makes history by taking top three spots in the singles chart
Not content with turning everyone with a radio into a Belieber, Justin Bieber has only gone and become the first artist ever to occupy the top three spots in the official UK charts.
The Canadian singer, who in the last 12 months has turned his public persona around, stays at number one for the fifth non-consecutive week with Love Yourself, followed by the absolute banger that is Sorry at number two and What Do You Mean at three.
It’s a remarkable feat for the 21-year-old who at the start of 2015 was arguably one of the most criticised musicians in the world.
In recent years he’s seen his success turn into public backlash from his bad behaviour, having punched a photographer in the face, had a lawsuit brought against him for egging a house, and admitted in a home video that he’d been acting ‘arrogant’ and ‘conceited’ for the past year or so.
But now with his chart success – and throwing his support behind an NHS choir – it seems he’s back in everyone’s good books, with a JBiebs single having placed in the top 5 of the UK charts every single week since September.
Now, that’s impressive.
Elsewhere in the charts, have Motörhead re-entered with their classic rock song Ace Of Spades, following a fan campaign, Motörhead For No.1, that came about after the death of frontman Lemmy Kilmister.
The track, which originally entered the charts in 1980 at number 15, is now at number 13 after a strong online movement.
Major Lazer ft. Nyla’s Light It Up also made a big leap up the charts, from number 49 to number 21.
