The California upstart’s single is up two spots to the top, powered by 68.2 million U.S. streams and 11,000 digital song sales in the week ending Jan. 9. Billboard reports Bieber brought in 29.3 million streams and an additional 71,000 in sales.

Not only has Ricch secured the top spot on the Hot 100 but his Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial album has returned to the No. 1 spot on the chart. He will be the first artist this decade to hold down both spots.
