The song had returned to #1 by mid-day Saturday, after relinquishing its throne to newer releases. The video was released at midnight on Friday.
It was the fourth time Bieber appeared on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and his second time in 2020.
Justin - whose video features 14-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay as a young version of himself - admitted to feeling emotional when he watched the video. Bieber, who is now 26, was discovered at age 13 by manager Scooter Braun.
The video shows Justin struggling to cope with the pressures of stardom and the pop star recently touched on the issue in a candid Instagram caption. In the teaser for the upcoming SNL episode, the Unsure Star wears a bright light green dress and one of the best accessories for these unusual times: a face mask.
"I can't see it, but I can feel it", Rae soothes the "Yummy" singer.
The lyrics and video have a much more somber tone than the music video for rapper DJ Khaled and Drake's "Popstar", released last month.
"I was 18, with no skills in the real world, with millions of dollars and access to whatever I wanted", Bieber writes. The number began with Bieber singing the song while facing the mirror.
He said: "Being someone in my position I believe it is powerful to express vulnerability and that's why I believe this song is so powerful!" The album will be a follow up to "Changes", which dropped earlier this year.
