Justin Bieber may not be number one at the box office with Believe, but he's number one somewhere else!

After the release of his Journals, the popstar made his way to number one on Billboard's Social 50 chart, dethroning Beyoncé of her top spot!

If you're unclear what the Social 50 chart is, it basically measures where artists rank on all their social media platforms, so, it looks like JBieb's "retirement" freak out allowed the star to rise up in the ranks!

Billboard breaks it down and explains how JB got his groove back, they said:

Bieber’s rise back to No. 1 is fueled by a promotion blitz across all social media channels. Frequent updates promoting Journals and a "complete my Journals" deal through iTunes on Instagram lead to a 31% rise in post likes on the platform. This positive reaction from fans was mirrored on Facebook, where a 25% rise in conversation about the artist on the platform leads to a 1.8 million new fans on the platform, a 56% increase over the previous week.

The Biebs should thank his lucky stars, team for all that hard work!

Let's see you work harder now that you're back from that short retirement of yours!

    meh he still will never take over iTunes the way she did plus his album has a way lower rating. The only reason he got the higher social media is because young little girls would rather a sugared up piece of shit they call music rather then real mature music/art that means something. just saying :) that is all

    He knocked Beyonce of first place on the Itunes chart within 1 hour of his release of his new Album. Now he's 2. And he charted in a lot of countries.

    justin plz dont retire from music …….

  5. 5

    We keep getting the same 5 corporate stars - here are two of them in one article.

    Music and the music business, has been reduced to 5. These 5 get more media attention than all the other musicians in the world, combined. Corporate music has marginalize the best of the rest into footnotes. It has been decreed by the suits that you will not have any real career in music unless you are Beyonce, Beiber, Gaga, Perry, or Swift. (and maybe runnerups 1D, JT, and Miley).
    Hunkasuarus = One standard guitar, one voice, and one revolution.

    Never in history have 5 musicians got more press than all the rest. Never in history has the music business been mostly 3 companies (Universal, Warners, Sony). Never in history has the major media companies owned the music companies too. Now that's music news every media should be covering!

    I speak for the thousands of musicians that have been marginalized just to cover every moment of the 5 that are left.

    Re: Joeyness – From a musical viewpoint, his album sounds better to me.
