Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” takes the No. 1 spot this week.

via Billboard:

After eight total, and seven consecutive, weeks at No. 2, Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” crowns the Hot 100 (dated Jan. 23) at last. The track dethrones Adele’s “Hello,” which had spent its first 10 weeks at No. 1 dating to its debut atop the Nov. 14 chart; “Sorry” debuted the same week at No. 2.

“Sorry,” released on SchoolBoy/Raymond Braun/Def Jam, marks Bieber’s second Hot 100 No. 1, and second-in-a-row, after a lengthy wait for his first topper. After six years of charting 46 prior entries, beginning in July 2009, Bieber earned his first No. 1 on the Hot 100 dated Sept. 19, when “What Do You Mean?” debuted at No. 1. Now, he’s achieved two leaders back-to-back.
