Justin Bieber, a Canadian singer, has broken a US chart record set by Elvis Presley with ‘Changes’, his new album.
Beiber’s fifth studio album is no 1 on this week’s Billboard 200 — a feat that makes him the youngest solo artist to achieve seven number one albums, at the age of 25.
Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units.
The feat also means the award-winning singer has surpassed a 59-year-old record set by Elvis Presley, late American singer and actor. Elvis achieved the feat with ‘Blue Hawaii,’ his hit album in 1961, at the age of 26.
Bieber’s album — his first in four years — achieved the milestone last week after selling 231,000 copies. The feat also makes it the ninth time Beiber’s album will make the top 10 on the Billboard chart.
The latest ranking also sees new entries into the top 10 with A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Tame Impala and Monsta X leading the new arrivals.
‘Changes’, however, faces competitions from other new projects to maintain its position on top of the chart in the coming weeks.
One of such is ‘Map of the Soul: 7,’ by BTS, a South Korean pop group, which already garnered pre-orders of 4.02 million copies worldwide as at last week Friday.
