“10,000 Hours” debuts at No. 4.
As “10,000 Hours,” Bieber’s new collaboration with Dan + Shay, debuts at No. 4 (on the chart dated Oct. 19), he joins an elite group of artists that have each spent at least 200 total weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10 over their careers.
Notably, Bieber, 25, is the youngest male soloist to earn the honor (at the time of achieving the feat). Among all soloists, Rihanna, the leader with 360 total top 10 weeks, was younger (23) when she tallied her 200th week in the tier.
(Note that the stat summarizes the total top 10 weeks for all of an artist’s top 10 hits, regardless of whether any charted in the region simultaneously; for example, when The Beatles spent a week with songs at Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the April 4, 1964-dated Hot 100, the haul equated to five frames in the region for the group’s top 10-weeks total for their songs overall.)
Here is a look at the nine artists that have notched at least 200 weeks among all their Hot 100 top 10s:
279, Mariah Carey
241, Bruno Mars
219, Janet Jackson
212, The Beatles
200, Justin Bieber
Bieber, now up to 16 total Hot 100 top 10s, first appeared in the bracket on Feb. 6, 2010 (less than a month before he turned 16), when “Baby” debuted at its No. 5 peak. Before “Hours,” he ran up his sum to 199 weeks in the top 10 with this year’s No. 2-peaking “I Don’t Care,” with Ed Sheeran.
