It’s the sales figure we’ve all been waiting for.
Yes, after weeks of anticipation, tonight saw the release of Justin Bieber‘s first week sales for his latest album ‘Believe‘.
Want to know how many units the Pop Prince pushed?
Debuting at #1, ‘Believe’ is now the highest selling LP in the US, outselling releases by Kenny Chesney and the ‘Rock Of Ages’ soundtrack.
Quite interestingly, this impressive sales figure is almost ten times as large as the second week sales for Usher‘s ‘Looking For Myself’, which suffered a sales dip of 61% with 48,242 copies sold this week.
Though it didn’t bring in the 500k it had been predicted to, Justin has much to celebrate tonight.
For, taking the competition he faced from his own mentor on a chart front, he has sold exceptionally well, bringing in one of the year’s highest first week totals.
Of course, while some may be quick to downplay this feat, we can’t but applaud both he and the well received project.
