Ja, ja, ja, the boy is at it again. They don't call him Justin Bieber for nothing. Okay... don't know what the name means, but JB is just too great for this industry... and for his age. The pop sensation, who turned 18 in March, tops the Billboard chart for the fourth time after selling 374,000 copies of Believe, the year's biggest debut, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
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. She is just boss with the charts. But JB takes the best selling debut of the year thus far.
Considering the difficult climate for album sales, Bieber's mark "is a very robust number," says Keith Caulfield, Billboard's associate director of charts. "That Bieber can have the biggest opening week of the year says that he's doing a good job. It's always tough making that transition from tweeny-teeny pop star to young adult. It's a challenge, and he seems to be doing quite well so far."
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. Welll, lemme bump this "boyfriend" tune that JB gave us. The boy is hella talented. Well done boy!
