Justin Bieber has become the youngest soloist ever to reach 100 career entries on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’.
The Canadian singer reached the milestone on Billboard’s July 24-dated list as ‘Stay’, his latest single, debuted at no 3.
In a post on Tuesday, Billboard said Bieber hit the mark at “27 years, four months, and three weeks” of age.
He surpassed Drake, who tallied his 100th career title on the chart in 2015 at 28 years, 11 months, and two weeks.
In third place is Lil Wayne, who scored his 100th Hot 100 hit at 29 years, five months, and three weeks old in 2012.
Bieber first appeared on the chart when ‘One Time’, his single, debuted on Billboard’s July 25, 2009-dated ranking.
He was 15 years, four months, and three weeks old at the time.
Below are 11 singers with the most Billboard Hot 100 appearances, dating back to the chart’s August 1958 inception.
