After pleading with fans to stream his new single "Yummy" in order to get the song to no. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, Justin Bieber's track just missed the coveted spot.

The Canadian pop star's new song lands at no. 2 on the chart. Rapper Roddy Ricch's "The Box" beat out "Yummy," rising from no. 3 to no. 1, making it the musician's first no. 1 single.

"Yummy" debuted at the no. 2 spot after Bieber released the song and its accompanying music video last week.

Bieber had been taking to social media to encourage fans to buy the new track on iTunes and stream it on Spotify and Apple Music. Video clips of the singer asking fans to listen to "Yummy" went viral.


Billboard reports "Yummy" sold 71,000 copies in its first week and was streamed 29.3 million times.

Bieber reacted to the news on Twitter, thanking fans for their support. He even congratulated Ricch, writing, "You had to go and make a banger smh! Haha ur the man!! Love the song!! congrats on your first #1!! Everyone go stream #thebox"


After landing at the no. 2 spot, "Yummy" becomes Bieber's 17th Hot 100 top 10 hit. His first was "Baby," which peaked at no. 5 back in 2010.
