Justin Bieber’s collaboration “I’m The One” with DJ Khaled, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne and Quavo from Migos has debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The track’s strong opening on the chart adds to an impressive list of stats for Justin when it comes to Billboard’s charts.
The track is the 28th song to ever debut at number one on the Hot 100. It’s the first rap song to debut in the top spot in seven years and the first song to ever reach number one with five individually credited artists. The high spot means Justin also becomes the third artist to have multiple number one debuts in the Hot 100. He’s tied with Britney Spears at two now while Mariah Carey still leads the pack with three.
The song marks Justin’s fourth number one overall. It’s also his fourth top five ranking for a song he’s featured on since he dropped “Purpose” in 2015. A strong performance in Digital Sales and Streaming is par for the course for Justin, but he added his eighth and third number ones on each chart, respectively.
Despite the song’s current success, some people are wondering what the impressive chart performance might mean for the song’s future. At this time last year, Drake’s “One Dance” hit the top spot and went on to become the best performing song from Memorial Day to Labor Day, making it a de facto song of the summer.
Could Justin’s feature on “I’m The One” be poised for similar success? Is “I’m The One” your favorite for an early song of the summer contender?
