Justin Bieber Becomes Youngest Soloist Ever to Reach 100 Billboard Hot 100 Hits, As 'Stay' Debuts



His latest, with The Kid LAROI, grants him his 100th entry at 27 years, four months and three weeks of age.

 

 

Justin Bieber makes history as the youngest solo artist ever to reach 100 career entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, notching his milestone 100th on the July 24-dated list as "Stay," with The Kid LAROI, launches at No. 3.

Bieber reaches the mark at 27 years, four months and three weeks of age, spanning from his March 1, 1994, birth to the date of the latest Hot 100. He passes Drake, who tallied his 100th career title on the chart when he was 28 years, 11 months and two weeks old in 2015.

Now in third place, Lil Wayne scored his 100th Hot 100 hit when he was 29 years, five months and three weeks old in 2012.

Bieber first appeared on the Hot 100 this week 12 years ago, when "One Time" debuted on the July 25, 2009-dated ranking. He was 15 years, four months and three weeks old at the time.

Here's a look at the 11 acts with the most Hot 100 appearances, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

Most Billboard Hot 100 Hits:
235, Drake
207, Glee Cast
174, Lil Wayne
137, Taylor Swift
123, Future
118, Nicki Minaj
109, Elvis Presley
109, Kanye West
103, Chris Brown
102, Jay-Z
100, Justin Bieber

Notably, multiple members of the Glee cast were younger than Bieber is now when the TV troupe notched its 100th Hot 100 entry. Plus, the ensemble, whose members rotated over the Fox series' run, holds the record for the fastest that any act has reached 100 Hot 100 hits from a first visit to the survey: just one year, six months and one week, from June 2009 to December 2010.

Additionally, Elvis Presley's career predated the Hot 100's start. He earned his 100th Hot 100 hit ("T-R-O-U-B-L-E") in May 1975, when he was 40 years and four months old. He achieved 30 hits on predecessor pop charts beginning in 1956; even if we mixed those songs and his first 70 Hot 100 entries, Bieber would still hold the mark as the youngest soloist to 100, as the King was 33 years, three months and two weeks old when "You'll Never Walk Alone" became his 70th Hot 100 hit in April 1968.
