“Sorry” by Justin Bieber has dethroned Adele’s “Hello” to become the top song on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 this week. It is the Stratford, Ontario native’s third chart-topping hit after “Boyfriend” and “What Do You Mean”. It is also the fourth number one hit in 2015 by a Canadian artist following “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” by The Weeknd and the aforementioned “What Do You Mean”. Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself”, also from his Purpose album, is currently #1 in the United Kingdom. He recently broke a UK chart record by having hits at both #1 and #2 for four consecutive weeks. The previous record holder was The Beatles, who logged three consecutive weeks at numbers 1 and 2 in 1967-68 with “Hello Goodbye” and “Magical Mystery Tour”. “Love Yourself” is also at the summit on the Australian charts. In Canada, Adele’s “Hello” had been at the top for seven consecutive weeks before “Sorry” knocked it off this week. It is the 10th chart topper on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 by a Canadian artist since the launch of the chart in mid-2007.
