Justin Bieber has collected his second straight No. 1 single, as “Sorry,” the second single from his Purpose album, has bumped Adele’s “Hello” out of the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“Hello” spent 10 straight weeks at No. 1, and “Sorry” spent eight non-consecutive weeks behind it. In September, Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, becoming the singer’s first chart-topper.

Meanwhile, Bieber’s third single from Purpose, “Love Yourself,” clocks in at No. 3 on the chart. Could the Biebs replace himself at No. 1, as the Weeknd did last year? We’ll have to wait and see if “Love Yourself” finds enough love to make it to No. 1.

Also of note on the Hot 100: Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out” moves up 9-5, reaching a new peak and giving the duo its first Top 5 hit one week after the group scored its first Top 10 hit. “Stressed Out” is still No. 1 on the Hot Rock Songs chart.
