Justin Bieber today scales new heights on the streaming front, becoming the first act in Official Chart history to hit 100 million streams of a song in the UK, the Official Charts Company can confirm.

Sorry, the second of three Number 1 singles from current album Purpose, scoops the accolade of the most-streamed song in Britain since Official Charts Company records began. Spending two weeks at the top back in October, the track has remained a firm favourite with UK music fans having never left the Official Chart in the 33 weeks since its release.

Co-written by Canadian superstar Bieber, with Skrillex and Blood on production duties, the tropical pop anthem smashes over the new digital threshold this week based on audio streams from chart-reporting services including the likes of Spotify, Google Play, Deezer, Apple Music, Tidal, Napster and more.

Official Charts Company Chief Executive Martin Talbot comments:

“It has been an extraordinary few months for Justin Bieber and this new streaming landmark really tops the lot. For Sorry to become the first track in Official Chart history to pass the 100m mark is a record which can never be taken away from Justin - it is, perhaps, the four-minute mile of music streaming. A remarkable feat, a first which will be Justin's record forever.”

No stranger to record-breaking chart feats, Bieber became the first recipient of the Official Chart Record Breaker Award earlier this year (pictured) to mark his achievement of holding positions Number 1, 2, and 3 simultaneously on the Official Singles Chart, with Love Yourself, Sorry, and What Do You Mean.

Both What Do You Mean and Love Yourself are also a whisker away from the 100 million streams milestone on 98.6 and 94.3 million streams, and expected to cross the line in the coming weeks.

The 100m might be referring to total streams, not just chart-eligible streams (10 streams per user per day or whatever it is).

It's a phenomenally fantastic song in all fairness.

No there's only one measure of streaming - it's used for the chart and for cumulative totals.
