Bieber has eight new world records

Pop star Justin Bieber has eight new Guinness world records. His first new album in two years, Purpose, became the most streamed album on Spotify in one week and What Do You Mean? was the most streamed track in one week.

The Guinness World Records 2017 book will be available on Sept 8. Singer The Weeknd's Beauty Behind The Madness had 60 million listeners on Spotify, making it the most streamed album on the service as measured by unique listeners.
