Justin Bieber ‘Journals’ Takes #1 Spot from Beyonce – Social 50 Chart

Justin Bieber Social50

With the release of “Journals” on Monday, Dec. 23, Justin Bieber set the online world on fire and, in turn, returns to the No. 1 spot on the Social 50 to reclaim the throne for the first time in 18 weeks.

Billboard’s Social 50 chart ranks the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Wikipedia, Myspace and Instagram. The chart’s methodology blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist page views, song plays and reactions as measured by music analytics provider Next Big Sound.

According to Billboard, Justin’s move to No. 1 dethrones Beyonce, who slips No.1 to No.3 after returning to the top after her surprise album was released on Dec. 13. Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, rises to No.2.

    That awkward moment where Justin’s album takes top spot over Beyoncé’s, and we know how crazy he is about Beyoncé. That idea just had me laughing so hard. But anyways, congratulations, J.

    Some are actually saying he’s fading but:
    1] his tour ended as one of the top concert tours
    2 His album has been at no.1 and 2 for five days worldwide on i tunes.
    3 He’s social media’s reigning king.
    4] there are more articles about his purchasing a dog than news of most celebrities.

      Good point. I believe he will take some time for himself and put new music into production at the end of 2014 and hopefully a 2015 world tour.
