Justin Bieber has had much success since he debuted many years ago. The world watched him turn from a teen heartthrob into a young man finding his niche in the mainstream music world. It wasn't until just a year and a half that Bieber earned his very first Hot 100 No. 1 and since then, he's become the Canadian artist with the most Hot 100 No. 1 hits passing two of the world's most recognizable acts.
Bieber is currently featured on the No. 1 track "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. It's led the Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks at the time of publication with a sixth approaching while also topping the Songs of the Summer seasonal chart for a second week. Bieber was featured on the previous No. 1 "I'm the Only One" by DJ Khaled which also includes Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne and Quavo. The song became the 28th to debut at the top position in the history of the chart, a feat Bieber himself has accomplished.
Justin Bieber has racked up three No. 1 hits as a solo artist as well. In Sept. 2015, his track "What Do You Mean?" became the 23rd song to open at No. 1 and he joined the likes of Céline Dion, Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and many more. He then followed up with "Sorry" hitting the top of the charts taken from parent album Purpose. Soon after, he became the 12th artist to replace themselves on the chart as "Love Yourself" moved into the peak slot.
Speaking of Céline Dion, Bieber surpasses the Québécoise singer for most No. 1 hits by a Canadian act. Dion and singer-songwriter Bryan Adams are tied in second place with four chart toppers each. Dion first reached No. 1 with "The Power of Love" in 1994 where it would spend four weeks ruling. She then commanded the Hot 100 with "Because of You" from the movie "Up Close and Personal" and included on the Grammy winning Falling into You. The track would become her longest No. 1 having spent six weeks at the top. Then "My Heart Will Go On" would go on to capture the hearts of millions worldwide and enjoyed two weeks as the hottest song in the country. Her final No. 1 came in 1998 with the song "I'm Your Angel" featuring R. Kelly.
Bryan Adams had three of his four No. 1 hits in the 1990s. His first leader came in 1985 with one of his popular ballads, "Heaven." In 1991, his signature track "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You)" crowned the Hot 100 and has since become his most recognizable track. "All for Love" featuring Rod Stewart and Sting hit No. 1 in 1993 and his final U.S. No. 1 came in 1995 with "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?"
