Justin Bieber goes straight to number one with his new song “Peaches.” The saucy R&B record that features soul singers Daniel Caesar and Giveon has risen to number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Billboard 200 concurrently.
With “Peaches” reaching number one in both areas of the Billboard, Justin Bieber has now become the first solo male artist to debut at number one on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously. According to Billboard, “Among all acts, Bieber joins only BTS and Taylor Swift in having started at No. 1 on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously, with Swift having accomplished the feat twice.”
Although Justin Bieber has landed on the charts multiple times, this is the first time Daniel Caesar and Giveon have gotten a number one hit on Billboard’s Hot 100. According to Billboard, “Peaches” also, “opens at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, where it’s Bieber’s fifth leader and Caesar and Giveon’s first each, and No. 3 on Digital Song Sales.”
Aside from “Peaches” being a hit song, it’s also a smooth R&B track that suits the voices of Justin Bieber, Giveon and Daniel Caesar respectively. The song is also a nice addition to Bieber’s recently released album “Justice,” providing a soulful edge to the pop-centric album.
Additionally, the “Peaches” retro music visual made the song that much more swaggy. Overall Bieber’s full album “Justice” is a well produced record that has some great collaborations in addition to Daniel Caesar and Giveon. Chance The Rapper, Benny Blanco and Khalid are some of the other chart-topping artists that are also featured on Bieber’s new album.
Bieber’s voice stands out on this album, presenting a newly evolved Justin Bieber. According to Pitchfork, “Justice delivers some of the strongest, most tightly controlled vocal performances of his career.” Bieber’s melodic vocals and experimental sound intertwined with guest appearances from impactful artists makes “Justice” worth the listen.
