Justin Bieber Scores Fifth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart

As expected, Justin Bieber achieves his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as “Believe Acoustic” debuts atop the list with 211,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

With the arrival, he becomes the only artist to have notched five No. 1 albums before turning 19 years old (he turns 19 on March 1.) He was previously tied with Miley Cyrus, who had also claimed four leaders before 19.

Bieber’s new album also gives him 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.”Believe Acoustic” features eight acoustic and/or live tracks originally found on his “Believe” studio album, released last year. “Acoustic” also includes three new recordings: “Yellow Raincoat,” “I Would” and “Nothing Like Us.”
