Justin Bieber becomes first artist to have five No.1 hit albums before turning 19

By Gina DiFalco,

Justin Bieber has scored his fifth No. 1 album with his newest, Believe Acoustic, making him the first artist with that amount of top albums before turning 19 in history.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Believe Acoustic has sold 211,000 copies so far and it’s determined Bieber’s record-breaking status.

His previous No. 1 albums are 2010’s My World 2.0, Never Say Never: The Remixes from 2011, Under the Mistletoe from the same year and Believe (2012).

He had been tied with Miley Cyrus before it was released, with four No. 1 albums before the age of 19, Billboard reports.

75 percent of Believe Acoustic’s sales were made by digital downloads, with about 20 to 25 percent of iTunes ore-orders placed.

The album features just three new songs - "Yellow Raincoat," "I Would" and "Nothing Like Us.” The rest are acoustic versions of eight of his songs from Believe.

MTV News reports that Bieber has also achieved another feat by becoming the tenth act in history of Billboard to have four consecutive No. 1 albums in as many years.

Bieber will turn 19 on March 1.
