In defense of JB's overlooked 2013 album of alt-pop/R&B songs.

Justin Bieber is three for three as far as his Purpose singles go: “Love Yourself” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, marking the third consecutive chart-topping song off the album. Even more impressive is that “Love Yourself” dethrones previous Purpose single “Sorry,” allowing Bieber to continue his reign at the top of the Hot 100 for a fourth week in a row. (“Sorry” had been #1 for three weeks.)

Kicking things off, lead Purpose single “What Do You Mean” made it to the top for a lone week last September before The Weeknd took over for a lengthy stretch.

Speaking of The Weeknd, he and Bieber now have something in common other than originating from Canada: They’re each one of only 12 artists to replace themselves at the top of the Hot 100 throughout the chart’s history.
