Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ breaks Britain’s most streamed song record
Mumbai, June 14 : Justin Bieber’s hit single ‘Sorry’ from his fourth studio album ‘ Purpose’ has broken all-time UK streaming record and has now been streamed a whooping 100 million times in the country alone.
Spending two weeks at the top back in October, the track has remained a firm favourite with UK music fans having never left the official chart in the 33 weeks since its release.
According to Official Charts Company’s Chief Executive Martin Talbot, “It has been an extraordinary few months for Justin Bieber and this new streaming landmark really tops the lot.”
He added, “For ‘Sorry’ to become the first track in Official Chart history to pass the 100m mark is a record which can never be taken away from Justin – it is, perhaps, the four-minute mile of music streaming. A remarkable feat, a first which will be Justin’s record forever.”
Notably, Bieber broke another record earlier this year by becoming the first singer to hold top three positions on the Official Singles Chart with ‘Love Yourself’, ‘ Sorry’, and ‘What Do You Mean.’
Interestingly, both ‘What Do You Mean’ and ‘ Love Yourself’ are also a whisker away from the 100 million streams milestone with 98.6 and 94.3 million streams respectively.
