So Adele & Justin Bieber Are Breaking Even More Records Now
'25' is pretty much the biggest album ever and Biebs just beat The Beatles...
So Justin Bieber has been No.1 for ages, and more recently been No.2 as well. Now, this hasn't gone unnoticed by the Official Charts Company, who today have revealed that Biebs - who tops this week's Official UK Top 40 with 'Love Yourself' for a third week - has set a brand new record as the first artist to ever log four weeks at Nos.1 and 2 consecutively - a record previously held by The Beatles who logged three weeks back in 1967/8 with 'Hello Goodbye' and 'Magical Mystery Tour' EP.
Does that mean JB is bigger than The Beatles now?? Say what!
In this week's chart, Adele climbs back to No.3 with 'Hello', Grace and G-Eazy sneak up another place to No.4 with 'You Don't Own Me' and Justin Bieber's 'What Do You Mean' steps up another place to No.5.
The campaign to get Stormzy's 'Shut Up' to the Christmas No.1 spot next week is catching momentum, shooting the MC up 91 places to No.8 this week, while X Factor winner Louisa Johnson enters the Top 10 at just No.9 with her new single 'Forever Young'.
