Justin Bieber makes history with 10 billion video views

Justin Bieber has made history as the first artist to break the 10 billion views mark on Vevo.

The pop superstar achieved the huge feat in 2,316 days - just over six years - according to bosses at the video streaming website.

Bieber, 22, past the milestone thanks to hit singles Sorry, which has racked up more than 1.1 billion views to date, and Love Yourself, which has garnered over 455 million clicks, reports Billboard.com.

The Canadian is already one of just three musicians to boast two videos with more than a billion views. His breakthrough track Baby became the first song ever to sail past the figure in 2014, and it now has 1.3 billion hits.

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are the other two stars to achieve the record, but Bieber could soon beat the girls to become the first to have three one billion-view videos as What Do You Mean? currently has 887.7 million hits.

The news is sure to put a smile on his face after he recently scrapped all meet-and-greets on his ongoing Purpose World Tour.

He made the announcement via Instagram on Tuesday, in the midst of his three-night residency at Los Angeles' Staples Center.

"Love u guys..," he began in the caption of a photo of himself hugging a young fan at a past meet-and-greet session.

"I'm going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.."

He concluded, "Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen."
