Justin Bieber Could Set Four BBMAs Records this Year

Justin Bieber is in good “Company” with this year’s Billboard Music Awards finalists. He has 12 nods in 11 categories, giving him the second-most nods out of any artist this year.

Justin is a finalist for Top Billboard 200 Album (Purpose), Top Streaming Song (Audio) (“Sorry”), Top Streaming Song (Audio) (“What Do You Mean”), Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top Social Media Artist, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Streaming Songs Artist, Top Dance/Electronic Song and (“Where Are Ü Now” with Diplo and Skrillex).


Not only is Justin a top finalist, but he also could set four BBMAs records this year.


Justin could surpass Garth Brooks, who currently is the highest winning male with 19 wins, if he takes home six or more BBMA trophies this year.


If Justin takes home more than eight trophies, he has the chance of beating Taylor Swift’s current all-time leading record of 20, pending other results.


If Justin wins Top Male Artist, he’ll become the only artist to have won the award twice so far.


Since the category Top Social Media Artist was created in 2011, Justin has been the only artist to win the award. If he wins Top Social Media Artist again this year, he’ll continue his domination streak and break his own record.


Justin had an incredible year. Despite his monster success since his 2009 career launch, the 13-time Billboard Music Award winner soared even higher with the release of his album Purpose in 2015. His sixth No. 1 set on the Billboard 200 generated his first three Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles: “What Do You Mean?” (which debuted on top), “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.”

The Biebs even replaced himself atop the Hot 100 with “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.” Justin also broke a vaunted Hot 100 record, placing 17 songs on the Dec. 5, 2015 chart, passing The Beatles and Drake for the most titles on the list by an artist in one week.
