Bieber tops British singles charts.

“His album is so honest to who he is right now,” he told NME. “He’s still a pop star making pop music, but at the same time, all the stuff I worked on with him had a sense of honesty about it. Justin Bieber stormed the British singles charts on Friday with three singles from his new album in the top five, a feat no other artist has managed since John Lennon, posthumously, in 1981. I’m not saying he wasn’t honest before, but when you listen to his lyrics, you can tell he is becoming an adult.” Skrillex and his frequent musical collaborator Diplo teamed up with Justin before, as the 21 year old pop star featured on their song Where Are Ü Now, which was released to the public in February 2015 under the electronic duo’s collaborative alias Jack Ü. “If you hear something that inspires you musically, you just want to be a part of it,” he explained. “I heard some well-written songs that were really good that they wanted me to do production on and from there, we wrote some new songs. It was an opportunity to try some stuff that I had never done before and we ended up making something really unique.” “I think he’s starting to grapple with the fact that he’s a role model for a generation,” he said of Justin. “I can’t speak for him, but I think he wants to be able to spread a positive message for young people.”

Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ was top, ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ was third and ‘(Just Like) Starting Over’ fifth in January 1981, the month after he was shot dead in New York.
