Justin Bieber Top Selling Album So Far This Year
Justin Bieber’s new album Believe has been only been on the charts for almost two weeks and already has become the years top-selling debut album.
Nielsen SoundScan reports sales of 374,000 copies following its release last week, giving the 18-year-old Canadian pop singer the fourth No. 1 album and the best sales week of his young career. “Believe” also debuted at No. 1 in 29 other countries. Believe has topped Madonna’s hot new album MDNA as the years top debut album so far and it is also the best selling first week release since Drake’s Take Care. Even Kenney Chesney’s “Welcome to the Fishbowl” followed Bieber last week with 193,000 albums sold. Already Bieber has sold more than 15 million album since his first album dropped in 2009.
Fans have been eager for a new album from Justin Bieber for a while. Bieber has done an acoustic album and a holiday album. The title songs music video has been viewed 86 million times on YouTube and putting four songs in the Top 40 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart simultaneously. It’s not the year’s biggest week overall. That belongs to Adele’s 21, which sold 730,000 copies the week after her Grammy wins. The heavily promoted Believe is the teen idol’s bid for adult status, though it’s uncertain if older fans are buying the album or Bieber’s reinvention. What do you think of this?
