Justin Bieber Matches One Of BTS And Taylor Swift’s Greatest Chart Triumphs

Must Read

Now that his new single “Peaches” has officially debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, Justin Bieber has matched a feat only two other musical acts in U.S. history have managed, and it once again proves just how powerful the Canadian pop star remains to this day.

This week on the Billboard charts, Bieber doesn’t just sit at No. 1 on both the Hot 100 singles ranking and the Billboard 200 albums tally, he debuts atop both lists. That has only happened three times previously, and only two names have done so.

The first musician to debut titles at No. 1 on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously was Taylor Swift, who accomplished the incredible showing last summer when her surprise full-length Folklore and its lead single “Cardigan” arrived in first place at the same time. She repeated that success in December with her follow-up project Evermore and its focus track “Willow.” She remains the only act to do so twice.

In between Swift’s instant rulers, BTS did the same, with their short album Be kicking off its time on the Billboard 200 at the same time new single “Life Goes On” gave the band a second No. 1 start on the Hot 100. The track was the first song performed primarily in Korean to hit No. 1 on that chart.

“Peaches” is Bieber’s seventh No. 1 on the Hot 100 and his fourth immediate champion. He brings R&B musicians Giveon and Daniel Caesar, both featured on the tune, to the penthouse (and the top 10) for the first time in their careers.

It’s not uncommon for a popular new release from a well-known band or performer to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and, in fact, it’s been far more common for a just-released title to begin its time on the ranking at is peak, rather than rise to a new high later on. It remains fairly rare (though less so than in previous years) for new singles to open at No. 1, and especially in the same period as the album on which they’re typically featured. Many big acts can secure a No. 1 title on the Billboard 200, very few can hope to do the same on the Hot 100.
