A couple weeks ago, One Direction dropped "Drag Me Down," their first single without Zayn Malik. The tune was felt like a triumph for the band and their fans alike: They could remain strong, even without the former member. To show support, Directioners flocked to Spotify to listen and re-listen to the tune, eventually racking up 20 million streams in 24 hours...a new record.

It didn't last long: Justin Bieber has returned, and with him, a new single, "What Do You Mean?" Guess how many plays that bad boy received in 24 hours? 21 million!

If this signifies anything, it's that teenage girls run the internet. Trust us.
