Last month, Justin Bieber broke the record by having the most Spotify listens for an artist for his song “Stay.” His track has also taken over Ariana Grande’s previous spot.
On Monday, Spotify revealed that Justin Bieber had broken streaming records to be their most listened artist. Last month, the pop singer had around 83.3 million listens for his song “Stay.”
It’s the first time an artist achieved such numbers in the same period. Bieber’s record was followed by The Weeknd, with 74.5 million monthly listeners, and Ed Sheeran reached 72.4 million.

The artist who previously held the record for most monthly listens was Ariana Grande, with 82 million. Bieber’s song also earned the title of the biggest in the world.
It spent its fifth week as Billboard 200 Chart’s number one track. The song also spent its third week on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. survey and drew 124.9 million streams that were up by 1%.

It had 95.3 million streams, which were up 3%, and 10,900 sold. The sold units were up by 4% in territories outside the US from the August 20 to 26 tracking week.
“Stay” has sold 24,500 downloads, which was down by 1% worldwide from the August 20 to 26 tracking week. Bieber’s song actually knocked BTS, with the song “Butter,” from Billboard’s top slot.
On August 20, 2021, Bieber revealed that he’d host a three-day festival for Las Vegas. The festival will be held in October 2021, and the lineup will include Jaden Smith, The Kid LAROI, and much more.
It will be hosted between October 7 and 10, but the event will be split into two venues. Part of it will occur at the Encore Beach Club and the Wynn Las Vegas’ XS Nightclub.
The opening party will be held at XS on Thursday night before a pool party is hosted the following day. The “Hold On” singer will also host a “skate park takeover” headline set on Saturday.
The event has been dubbed Justin Bieber & Friends and will include artists like Kehlani, David Guetta, Eddie Benjamin, and TroyBoi. A press release revealed that there would be a second “phase” of acts for the event.
There are three tiers available, and each of them includes a three-night accommodation and event access for two punters. The passes are priced between $1,099 and $1,399.
