Justin Bieber Sets New Record On ‘Billboard Hot 100’

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.

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.
