Taking the top spot from Beyonce...
"Retirement" has been good to Justin Bieber. Billboard reports that Bieber topped the Billboard Social 50 for the first time since August, displacing Beyonce from the top spot. Bieber hit #1 following the release of Journals on Monday, along with his message on Twitter claiming to be retiring. Bieber later said that the retirement message was a prank.
Coming in at #2 was Miley Cyrus, up a spot from last week thanks to her music video for "Adore Us," while Beyonce slipped two spots to #3. One Direction was up one spot to #4 while Katy Perry followed suit by rising a rung to #5.
The bottom half of the top ten was led by Ariana Grande, down two to #6. Justin Timberlake was up four spots to #7 thanks to his Saturday Night Live appearance. Demi Lovato rose one place to #8, Eminem was down two to #9 and Shakira was up two places to #10.
