Justin Bieber has just made history again. The superstar has become the first and only artist to have three music videos reach 1 billion views on VEVO. That's a new record.

On Friday, (May 6), the "What Do You Mean" music video hit 1 billion views on the platform before surpassing it. The milestone was reached in the 250 days since the video dropped on August 30, 2015, when Bieber performed it that same night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Back in March, Bieber's "Sorry" dance video broke South Korean pop star Psy's record as the fastest male solo artist to reach 1 billion views on VEVO.

Following mobilized streaming of the video by Bieber fans, "Sorry" punched in 1 billion views in 137 days by the morning of March 7, breaking the 158-day record held by Psy's "Gangnam Style."

Bieber first tallied 1 billion VEVO views with the music video for his signature 2010 hit "Baby" back in February 2014.

In March, the heartthrob became the first artist to reach 10 billion video views on VEVO. At the time, Billboard reported that 4 billion of those views were accrued from the official music videos for Purpose singles.

It also looks like the Bieber has a new tattoo. On his face, no less. On Friday night, random eyewitnesses tweeted that the singer was in a tattoo parlour with pals on West 4th and 6th ave in NYC.
