Justin Bieber ends Adele's reign on U.S. pop charts

Justin Bieber has scored another TransAtlantic number one after dethroning Adele at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in America, just days after making pop chart history in the U.K.

Bieber's Sorry has spent seven consecutive weeks playing runner-up to Adele's Hello on the countdown, but the wait is now over for his fans as the pop star takes over at the top.


The Canadian singer's new number one ties Outkast's The Way You Move for the longest time spent at two before hitting the top spot.


Bieber became the first artist in U.K. chart history to dominate the top three spots on Friday (08Jan16). The pop superstar held on to numbers one and two with Love Yourself and Sorry, respectively, while What Do You Mean? climbed up a place to three, helping him snag the new chart record.


Meanwhile, back in the Hot 100, Adele's Hello slides to two after spending 10 weeks on top, while Bieber's Love Yourself stays put at three, and Drake's Hotline Bling and Twenty One Pilots' Stressed Out round out the new top five.
