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.

This comes as no surprise, considering Justin is the biggest pop sensation on the planet right now. He also had four other releases hit No. 1, making this his fifth No. 1 album to date.
The new album may also give Justin a No. 1 album in four consecutive years — something only nine earlier acts have done in the nearly 57-year history of the Billboard 200 chart.
Justin Bieber’s BELIEVE acoustic album drops January 29th. And if he scores #1 on the Billboard 200, then he’ll have two historical moments under his belt:
1). As the first artist under 19 to have five chart-topping albums.
2). As the 10th act to score a #1 album in four years in a row.
As of Jan2013, Justin’s tied with Miley Cyrus at four chart-toppers at such a young age. If Justin manages to crush those broken records, hopefully that will mend his broken heart.
