Justin Bieber Tops Billboard Hot 100 for First Time with 'What Do You Mean?'
The 21-year-old singer’s 2012 song “Boyfriend” was his highest ranking hit at number two. Justin is also now the youngest male artist to debut at number one.
“I’m happy to see Justin doing what he does best: music,” Justin‘s manager Scooter Braun told Billboard.
“I am thrilled for Justin, who put so much heart, soul and hard work into creating and launching this song,” Steve Bartels, Def Jam CEO, added. “I’m also very proud of the way the Scooter Braun team and the Def Jam family came together to execute this effort, with the vision and the goal of Justin’s first-ever Hot 100 chart-topper. [It's] a reminder of what an important global star Justin has become, with worldwide chart milestones being achieved daily as the song resonates. Today’s Hot 100 No. 1 is an historic accomplishment, yet it’s only the beginning of the excitement that lies ahead for Beliebers across the globe.”
