Justin Bieber and The Weeknd have ten reasons to celebrate this week. The Canadian singers are now record holders in the 2017 edition of the Guinness World Records. The "Sorry" singer nabbed eight titles while the "Can't Feel My Face" crooner scored two.

Justin and the Weeknd scored a combined ten records.

Justin's hit single "What Do You Mean?" is the most streamed track on Spotify during one week of play and his album Purpose is the most streamed album on the music app. He is also the first act to occupy the top three spots on the UK singles charts thanks to his songs "Love Yourself," "Sorry" and "What Do You Mean?"

The Weeknd nabbed two honours.

Both singers are extremely popular on social media but it's Justin who scooped up the most followers on Twitter by a male record thanks to his more than 85 million fans. The 22-year-old also claimed the records for the most viewed music channel on YouTube and most subscribers on Youtube for a male musician.

The 2017 list includes some other famous faces, including the late David Bowie, who returned to the book for the first time in 10 years. Following his death in January, 19 of the singer's albums hit the UK charts earning him a posthumous record for most simultaneous entries on the UK album charts.

The Guinness World Records 2017 edition will be released on Sept. 8.
