Justin Bieber – ‘BOYFRIEND’ #2 On BILLBOARD Top 100!


Justin Bieber returns to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Social 50 chart this week, undoubtedly due to the tremendous impact of the release of his newest single, “Boyfriend.” The teen singer dethroned Rihanna, bumping her down to the No. 3 spot. “Boyfriend” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 this week at No. 2 and has managed to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 and the Hot Digital Songs chart.

Since dropping on March 27, the track has seen a substantial 15 million views on YouTube, which helped lead to an 18% increase in profile views on MySpace and a 103% increase in overall fan acquisition across Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The 680% increase in views to Bieber’s YouTube channel wasn’t just due to the overwhelming success of the release; two 15-second previews have also been released for his upcoming “Boyfriend” music video, which have each helped spawned a litany of spoofs, reaction videos and other earned media for The Biebs.


Congratulations Justin Drew Bieber For Setting A New Record In Your Career! Looks Like Operation BieberBlast Worked After all ;-)





Justin Bieber’s ‘Boyfriend’ Bound For Big Hot 100 Debut



Justin Bieber’s new single “Boyfriend” is off to a blazing sales and radio start, likely setting up a big debut on next week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Released to digital retailers on Monday (March 26), the track, industry sources suggest, may sell around 400,000 downloads by the end of the tracking week on Sunday (April 1).

Remember, 350,000+ units need to be sold in order for ‘Boyfriend’ to make it to Number 1 on the list!

Depending on how the week pans out for Bieber, “Boyfriend” could earn the best sales week of the year for a single, surpassing Katy Perry’s arrival with “Part of Me” (411,000) a month ago.

On next week’s Hot 100 — which blends radio airplay, sales and streaming data — “Boyfriend” could see a top five debut. Among his 21 Hot 100 charted titles to date, “Baby” represents his highest start, having blasted in (and peaked) at No. 5 in February 2010.

Early radio airplay for “Boyfriend” looks just as promising as its sales. On the building Pop Songs tally, which measures mainstream top 40 radio airplay, the song is already in the top 20 with more than 800 first-week plays, according to Nielsen BDS.

Bieber appears in line for his first consensus hit at the top 40 radio format. Despite his track record of sales success (8 million albums sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and high social media profile (19 million Twitter followers), top 40 radio has been largely cautious of the teen star. Bieber has yet to reach the Pop Songs top 10, having charted as high as No. 14 with debut hit “One Time” in 2009. “Baby” reached No. 16 on Pop Songs.

After just two days-plus at radio, however, it appears that “Boyfriend” could be the song that fills in what has been one of the few voids — a radio smash — in Bieber’s meteoric career rise thus far.



Congratulations To Justin For ‘BOYFRIEND’ Making It To Number 1 In 31+ Countries!
