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.
