Justin Bieber makes a triumphant return to the Official Singles Chart today as What Do You Mean becomes his first UK Number 1 and sets a new streaming record!
The track lands straight in at the top and earns the highest first-week streams for a single ever in the UK, the Official Charts Company can confirm, racking up 3.2 million plays in its opening week across chart-reporting streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and more.

What Do You Mean is also Bieber’s fastest selling single in the UK with a combined sales total of 84,000, beating his previous best of 55,000 with 2012’s Number 2-peaking Boyfriend. Click here to view Justin Bieber’s full Official Chart history.
