'Believe' It: Biebs is Making History
The teen pop phenom's 'Believe Acoustic' bound for a No. 1 debut.
If all goes accordingly, Justin Bieber has another No. 1 album on the horizon.
Since dropping on Tuesday, the teen pop prince's Believe Acoustic has been soaring in sales, with industry sources estimating the collection could move between 180,000 and 190,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, Feb. 3., according to Billboard. That is expected to secure Bieber the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200.
If Believe Acoustic does land atop the Billboard 200 when chart is revealed on Feb. 6., Bieber will make history — twice over. For one, the singer-songwriter would become the only artist to have five No. 1 albums before turning 19, following his four previous chart-toppers: My World 2.0 (2010), Never Say Never: The Remixes (2011), Under the Mistletoe (2011) and last year's Believe.
“It shows that I’m still making good music and people are supporting me and I’m not going anywhere any time soon,” he told Billboard. “This is just an acoustic album of an album that I’ve already put out, and it’s going to go No. 1. That shows people that I’m still here and that talent rises above everything else. There’s so much going on. Talent rises above all of that.”
Just seven months after dropping his third studio album, Believe, Bieber bares his heart in the new acoustic collection. Along with slower-paced, stripped-down versions of nine hit songs from his No. 1 LP, Believe Acoustic also delivers three new tunes: “Yellow Raincoat,” “Nothing Like Us,” and “I Would.”paparazzo was killed in traffic trying to snap a photo of the whip — the pop star's fancy ride is sitting in a repair shop.
While the patch-up would put Bieber back an estimated $8,000 to $10,000, his bank account won't take a hit at all, as the hotel is footing the bill, according to TMZ. Why would the Four Seasons bother covering the multimillionaire's car tab? As the hotel sees it, it's just a small price to pay to maintain the ever-lucrative relationship it has with Bieber.
