His album may be a year old, but that isn’t stopping The Weeknd from breaking records.

The 26-year-old R&B sensation’s second studio album, Beauty Behind the Madness, just landed him in the Guinness World Records 2017 Edition. The breakthrough album racked up 60 million listeners on Spotify between December 1, 2014 and December 1, 2015, making it the most streamed album on Spotify in one year.

While that alone is enough to impress even the most skeptical of critics, the “Can’t Feel My Face” singer also earned the record title for most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 by a solo male artist. His sultry vocals and fusion of R&B, pop and rock helped him spend 45 consecutive weeks inside the Top 10 between March 7, 2015 and January 9, 2016.

The Weeknd joins fellow Canadian Justin Bieber in the book of records with Bieber holding a whopping eight world records, including the record for being the first act to occupy all top three positions simultaneously on the UK singles chart.

The Guinness World Records 2017 Edition goes on sale on September 8.
