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.)

justin-bieber-cool-red-jacketAs big as JB is there seems to be two big goals he has never reached. One being that he has never won a Grammy Award. This is considered by all artists as the most prestigious award in the music industry, including Justin himself. He has said his dream is to win a Grammy award. In time maybe this achievement will come.

The other big goal Justin has never reached is to have a #1 hit on the Billboard 100. “BABY” was a huge song but it only managed to hit #5. With the recent release of “BOYFRIEND”, Justin managed to hit #2 in it’s first week of release but quickly dropped to #5 in the second week.

Despite all his achievements, these are two big goals Justin has yet to reach and The Hollywood Reporter has written an analysis as to Why Justin Bieber Has Never Notched a No. 1 Single: A History From ‘Baby’ to ‘Boyfriend’ and it’s worth a read.

Below is a record of Justin’s Top Charting Songs:

  • “Boyfriend” Peak: No. 2, Weeks on Chart: 2
  • “Baby” Peak: No. 5, Weeks on Chart: 20
  • “Never Say Never” Peak: No. 8, Weeks on Chart: 19
  • “Mistletoe” Peak: No. 11, Weeks on Chart: 10
  • “Somebody to Love” Peak: 15, Weeks on Chart: 18
  • “One Less Lonely Girl” Peak: 16, Weeks on Chart: 16
  • “One Time” Peak: 17, Weeks on Chart: 25
  • “Never Let You Go” Peak: No. 21, Weeks on Chart: 2
  • “Favorite Girl” Peak: No. 26, Weeks on Chart: 2
