Justin Bieber's recent club bangers not only have him climbing the charts in New Zealand, he's also topping the Billboard lists in the United States so much he's breaking new records. 

The 'Sorry' hitmaker now has the most Billboard Hot 100 number one songs by any Canadian ever with five, surpassing previous joint record holders Bryan Adams and Celine Dion.

Bieber's recent collaborations - Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's 'Despacito,' and DJ Kahled's 'I'm the One' - have caused him to rocket past Dion and Adams, as well as other Canadian chart toppers like Drake, Nelly Furtado and the Weeknd.

The 23-year-old has now topped Billboard's charts for Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot Rap Songs and Hot Latin Songs, as well as twice topping the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.
