Justin Bieber rules the Billboard 200 this week with his new album Changes, blasting onto the ranking at No. 1 with over 230,000 equivalent units shifted, which now stands as the third-largest start of 2020. Thanks to healthy sales and stream counts, the singer also takes up quite a bit of space on the Hot 100 with a mix of proper singles, album cuts from the title and tracks he’s featured on that are fronted by other acts.
Bieber currently claims eight spots on the all-genre tally, an impressive showing for any artist. Four of those tunes are debuts, and they bring his career total placements on the list to 80. There are plenty of acts who have scored more smashes, but the pop icon now ranks among the 10 most successful solo males in the chart’s history.
Leading the way among all of Bieber’s current charters is new single “Intentions,” which features Quavo. The tune rises into the top 10 for the first time this frame, lifting to No. 9. It is now the pop musician’s eighteenth top 10 and Quavo’s tenth, combining his work on his own and the music he’s released as a member of rap trio Migos.

Four other cuts with Bieber’s name attached appear inside the top 40, though only one is new. Previous single “Yummy” narrowly misses re-entering the top 10, stalling at No. 11, while his Dan + Shay collaboration “10,000 Hours” settles at No. 13. “Forever,” which features Post Malone and Clever, opens at No. 23, while his Ed Sheeran duet “I Don’t Care” holds on at No. 39.
Bieber’s count was almost much higher this frame, as a number of songs featured on Changes debut on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, which serves as a 25-spot extension of the main ranking. Five additional tunes from the set appear on that list, and had things worked out slightly differently, the Canadian star could have owned 10% of the Hot 100.
