Justin Bieber makes history as the youngest solo artist ever to reach 100 career entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, notching his milestone 100th on the July 24-dated list as “Stay,” with The Kid LAROI, launches at No. 3.
Bieber reaches the mark at 27 years, four months and three weeks of age, spanning from his March 1, 1994, birth to the date of the latest Hot 100. He passes Drake, who tallied his 100th career title on the chart when he was 28 years, 11 months and two weeks old in 2015.
Now in third place, Lil Wayne scored his 100th Hot 100 hit when he was 29 years, five months and three weeks old in 2012.
Bieber first appeared on the Hot 100 this week 12 years ago, when “One Time” debuted on the July 25, 2009-dated ranking. He was 15 years, four months and three weeks old at the time.
Bieber and Kid LAROI previously joined forces on “Unstable” from Bieber’s monumental Billboard 200 No.1 album Justice.
