Justin Bieber just replaced himself atop the Hot 100 chart, as “Love Yourself” moves 2-1 and bumps out his own smash, “Sorry.”

“Love Yourself” is Bieber’s third No. 1 single, and all three come from his Purpose album: “What Do You Mean?” debuted at No. 1 in September, while “Sorry” finally pushed out Adele’s “Hello” last month. As Billboard points out, “Love Yourself” is also the first time Ed Sheeran is part of a No. 1 single, as the U.K. star helped co-write the Biebs’ latest hit.

On a busy chart this week, Twenty One Pilots also reaches a new high as “Stressed Out” moves 4-3; Flo Rida’s “My House” zooms into the Top 10, going 12-5; and Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself” jumps 14 spots to No. 7, thanks in part to her recent Saturday Night Live performance.

Meanwhile, Rihanna is back in the Hot 100 with “Work,” featuring Drake. The lead single from ANTI had a stunted chart week but still sold 126,000 downloads, per Nielsen Music.
