Justin Bieber earns eight Guinness World Records

Justin Bieber – world record holder?

Yes, the Biebs can now claim almost as many Guinness World Records titles as he can tattoos.

The 2017 edition of the record book honors Bieber for: the most streamed track on Spotify (“What Do You Mean” with 30,723,708); the most streamed album on Spotify in one week (“Purpose,” 205 million); the most simultaneous tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 in December 2015 (17); the most Twitter followers (82,235,563); and the most viewed YouTube music channel (10,478,651,389).

Bieber’s eight accolades also included nods for filling the Top 3 slots on the U.K. singles chart, having the most YouTube subscribers of any male and having the most simultaneous new entries in the Billboard Hot 100.

Bieber was presented with his certificates before one of his sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden as part of his “Purpose” tour.

The 2017 edition of the Guinness World Records book goes on sale Sept. 8.
