Fun. Keep Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” From Topping The Hot 100

Sorry, Beliebers. When it came down to it, fun.’s chart-topping single “We Are Young” had enough juice to maintain its position atop the Hot 100 for a fifth week, thus leaving Justin Bieber to debut at #2 with “Boyfriend”. Still, Bieber can be proud of two accomplishments: not only did music buyers snatch up a whopping 521,000 paid downloads of “Boyfriend”, it also marks Justin’s highest-charting solo single on the Hot 100. (Previously, he appeared on 2010 charity single “We Are The World 25 For Haiti”, which also reached #2.) Meanwhile, Bieber’s pal Carly Rae Jepsen crashes the Top 10 (at #10) with “Call Me Maybe”. The full Hot 100 will be published tomorrow by Billboard.
