The Canadian invasion continues in Britain with new chart records being broken all the time. This week’s chart has all four top spots occupied by Canadian artists. Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” vaulted from last week’s #12 to #4 this week. It is the Ontarioan’s first Top 40 hit in the UK. The top three spots on the singles chart are all taken by The Biebs. “Love Yourself” is #1, “Sorry” #2, and “What Do You Mean” #3. This is a new chart record in Britain as no artist has ever claimed the top 3 simultaneously since the UK charts began in 1952.
At home, Justin Bieber’s Purpose has just been declared a triple platinum album by Music Canada for pure sales of 240,000 units. It is his third album to achieve the milestone, the others being Under the Mistletoe and My World 2.0.
