Its Official, Justin Bieber Becomes Youngest Artist with Five #1 Albums
Justin Bieber becomes the youngest artist to land five chart-topping albums in the US on Wednesday (Feb6) when his latest record, “Believe Acoustic,” debuted atop the Billboard 200 album chart.
As expected, “Believe Acoustic” sold 211,000 copies in its first week according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan.
The album also topped iTunes downloads charts in 63 countries, and became a hot topic on Twitter as the Beliebers raced to purchase the record as soon as it was released.
Justin previously collected No. 1 albums with “My World 2.0″ (2010), “Never Say Never: The Remixes” (2011), “Under the Mistletoe” (2011) and “Believe” (2012).
He was tied with Miley Cyrus with four chart-topping albums before turning 19, and he is the only one of nine artists in Billboard history to have a No. 1 album for four consecutive years.
