Justin Bieber Occupies Top 2 Spots On U.S. iTunes Singles Chart

Justin Bieber is currently occupying the top 2 spots on the US iTunes singles chart with ‘Holy (feat. Chance the Rapper)’ at No. 1 and ‘Lonely’ with benny blanco at No. 2.

Bieber and blanco debuted ‘Lonely’ on Friday [Oct. 16], along with its music video, directed by Jake Schreier. The track was produced by blanco and Finneas.

“benny and Finneas are both extraordinary writers, and it’s been amazing collaborating with them on ‘Lonely,’” says Bieber.

“To be honest, the finished song is tough for me to listen to, considering how hard it was to get through some of those chapters. Hopefully telling this story will encourage others to vocalize what they are going through.”

“I’m so happy this song is coming out because not only is it personal to Justin, me and Finneas but we all get FUCKING lonely sometimes and everyone is always trying to play Superman and suppress their feelings and be strong all the time but it’s OK to take your cape off and use it as a big fucking tissue when you need to,” says blanco.

Bieber’s smash single, ‘Holy (feat. Chance the Rapper)’, reached No. 1 on the Spotify Global Chart, was streamed over 120 million times in its debut week, and broke his own single-day career best for YouTube views. With over 55 million monthly Spotify listeners, Bieber is among the platforms most-listened-to artists globally.

Changes, Bieber's fifth studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart. “Justin Bieber: Seasons,” the 10-episode YouTube Originals documentary series shattered records as the most viewed premiere ever of a YT Original series in its first week. He has now officially become the first artist to cross the threshold of 50 million YouTube subscribers, giving him the No. 1 artist channel on YouTube.

‘Lonely’ follows blanco’s 2018 debut album, Friends Keep Secrets, which featured hits Eastside' with Halsey and Khalid, 'I Found You' with Calvin Harris, 'Better to Lie' with Jesse and Swae Lee and 'Roses' with Juice WRLD and Brendon Urie, as well as collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, 6LACK, Ryan Beatty and more.
