JB’s newest CD reached the top of the Billboard 100 albums this morning making “Never Say Never: The Remixes” his second official #1 album.
Bieber’s “Never Say Never: The Remixes” sold 161,000 copies during the week ended Feb. 20, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the first time a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 has sold more than 160,000 units since Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” sold 276,000 copies during the week ended Dec. 26.
Bieber debuted at No. 1 last April when his first full-length release “My World 2.0” sold 283,000 copies. More stunning: All four of Bieber’s albums are in the top 40 this week, the first time an artist has managed the feat since Garth Brooks in 1993. “My Worlds 2.0” is No. 8, “My Worlds Acoustic” is No. 18, and “My World” is No. 31.
In addition to the continued success of Bieber’s film of the same name, with sales to date of $48 million after two weekends of release across North America, the teen phenom’s big week was no doubt also fueled by the Feb. 13 Grammy Awards, where he performed on the show (but lost both his races).
