John Lennon once said that The Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Well Johnny boy, in 2015, Justin Bieber has officially become more popular than The Beatles! Which means, by extension, he’s more popular than… uh, no, we’re not going to go there. Oh, and he’s more popular than Drake too…at least on the charts.

With the release of his new album Purpose, the Biebs has officially surpassed both The Beatles’ and Drake’s Billboard chart records of having the most songs on the Hot 100 at the same time.

Twice this year, Drizzy matched the Beatles’ 1964 record of having 14 songs on the Hot 100 at once. This week, thanks to the likes of “What Do You Mean?” “Sorry,” “Love Yourself” and a chunk of other Purpose gems, Bieber has 17 simultaneous hits on the chart. Here’s all of ’em:

No. 2 “Sorry”
No. 4 “Love Yourself”
No. 5 “What Do You Mean?”
No. 19 “I’ll Show You”
No. 31 “The Feeling,” featuring Halsey
No. 34 “Where Are U Now” (Skrillex & Diplo With Bieber)
No. 42 “Mark My Words”
No. 43 “Purpose”
No. 49 “No Pressure,” featuring Big Sean
No. 53 “Company”
No. 54 “No Sense,” featuring Travi$ Scott
No. 67 “Life Is Worth Living”
No. 74 “Children”
No. 81 “Been You”
No. 88 “We Are,” featuring Nas
No. 90 “Get Used to Me”
No. 98 “Trust”

Pretty impressive, right? That’s just three songs short of having the entire deluxe edition of Purpose on the Hot 100. Crazy!

Right now, at this very moment, Justin Bieber is indeed more popular than The Beatles. Who could have ever predicted that?

You go, Biebs!
