It’s official. Justin’s new album “Believe” has given JB his forth #1 album since his debut in December of 2009 with “My World” with sales of 374,000 in it’s first week. No other artists have had that many #1 albums in that span of time.

“Believe” is also the biggest album debut of 2012 so far, surpassing the 359,000 start of Madonna’s “MDNA.”  (The last artist to earn a larger launch was Drake’s “Take Care” on Dec. 3, 2011. It debuted with 631,000 albums. Adele’s “21” sold 730,000 albums a week after the Grammy show this year after she won multiple awards but it was not a 2012 debut.)

Justin also notches his own personal best sales week, beating the 291,000 that “My World 2.0” sold in its second week back in April of 2010.

Believe’s original forecast of 410,000-440,000 albums was inflated by the huge first-day sales and significant number of pre-orders.

The four JB albums to hit the top of Billboard 200 charts are:

  1. My World 2.0
  2. Never Say Never: The Remixes
  3. Under The Mistletoe
  4. Believe

(“My World” debuted at #5 and “My World Accoustic” reached #7.)


Adele has confessed she is harbouring a secret crush on Justin Bieber.

The Someone Like You singer, 23, was so impressed when she met the teen heartthrob, 17, that she’s been a fan ever since.

Adele told The Sun:

“I am a Bieber needer. I met him and he was very sweet. If I was 14 or 15 I think I would be well on it. I’d get on it.”

But she admitted:

“My 10-year-old cousin fancies him and I don’t really want to fancy the same person she does. It’s probably illegal for me to fancy him anyway! But he’s taking over the world.”
