The first ARIA Chart for 2016 has Justin Bieber holding for a fourth straight week with “Love Yourself”, which matches the four week’s his previous No.1 “What Do You Mean” (TW-9) achieved back in September of 2015.
This also means Justin has now amassed eight week from his two No.1 songs moving him to equal twelfth on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: 2010’s’ alongside Guy Sebastian and Meghan Trainor who have also notched up eight weeks from two chart topping singles this decade.
After falling to its lowest chart placing last week of No.3, “Hello” by Adele is back up one spot to No.2, pushing Justin’s third Top 10 hit of the week “Sorry” back down to No.3, whilst “Stitches” by Shawn Mendes rebounds back up to No.4 for a fourth non-consecutive week at the songs peak, and this in turn pushes last weeks Top 10 entry of “Fast Car” by Jonas Blue featuring Dakota down one spot to No.5.
