With track names like “Sorry,” “Trust,” “No Pressure,” and “Life Is Worth Living,” Justin Bieber’s new album, Purpose, is a masterclass in penitence-pop. And fans are lapping it up: On Monday, the album helped Bieber shatter the 51-year-old record for most songs simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot 100, with 17 of the deluxe edition’s 18 songs charting.

The record had previously been held by the Beatles, who had 14 songs on the Hot 100 in the April of 1964, and Drake, who did the same in March and October this year. Below are all 17 Bieber songs and their respective positions:
