Justin Bieber Is The First Artist With Five #1 Albums Before His 19th Birthday
If you didn’t “Believe” in Justin Bieber before, you will now. Billboard has declared that he is “the only artist in history to have five #1 albums before turning 19.” Last week it was predicted that the odds of a number one debut were in his favor.
His latest album Believe Acoustic was released on January 29th, and in it’s first week it sold 211,000 units, earning a #1 debut. It’s also #1 on iTunes in over 63 countries, making him the 10th act to score a #1 album in four consecutive years. Some stars who have achieved this record include Jay-Z, The Beatles, and Paul McCartney/Wings.
At this moment, Justin is the most-followed person on Twitter with more than 33.9 million followers and he was the first artist to achieve 3 billion views on his YouTube channel.
