Justin Bieber is only 18-years-old but the young musician is already making history. Early sales forecasts predict that his new album – ‘Believe Acoustic’ – will earn him his fifth number one album on the Billboard 200, making him the first artist in history to score five number one albums before turning 19.
Billboard says that the set may sell between 180,000 and 190,000 copies by the end of its first sales-tracking week, which is pretty good considering ‘Believe Acoustic’ is just a reworked compilation of his June 2012 release, ‘Believe’. The latter debuted atop the chart with 374,000 units moved.
It’s worth noting that only three of Bieber’s soon-to-be five number one albums are actual studio albums including ‘My World 2.0′, ‘Under the Mistletoe’ and ‘Believe’, in chronological order.
It seems like Bieber fans are really happy about the release, and happy fans make a happy Bieber. Cha-ching.
