Justin Bieber dominates U.K. chart's top three to set new record

Justin Bieber has become the first artist in U.K. chart history to dominate the top three spots in the new countdown.

The pop superstar holds on to numbers one and two with Love Yourself and Sorry, respectively, while What Do You Mean? climbs up one place to three, helping him snag the new chart record.


Meanwhile, Motorhead's Ace of Spades anthem returns to the Top 40, reaching a new peak at 13, thanks to a social media campaign to send the 1980 rock classic back up the countdown following frontman Lemmy Kilmister's death last month (Dec15), and singer Craig David scores his first hit in eight years with When the Bassline Drops entering at 33.


In the U.K. albums chart, Adele racks up her seventh consecutive week at the top with 25, keeping Elvis Presley's If I Can Dream at number two on what would have been his 81st birthday (08Jan16).


Justin's Purpose and Jess Glynne's I Cry When I Laugh are also unmoved at three and four, and Chaos and the Calm by James Bay rises five places to round out the new top flight at five.
