Take that, Madonna!
In news that absolutely no one finds shocking, Justin Bieber is number-one on this week's Billboard 200 chart, as his new album, "Believe," solid 374,000 copies in its first week of release. That's the biggest debut sales week to date in 2012, surpassing the Material Girl's 359,000 for "MDNA."
The figure also represents a personal best for The Biebs. He previously sold 291,000 albums of "My World 2.0" in April 2010.
Justin, of course, has been anywhere and everywhere this week for promotion. The above still was snapped of him during a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, while he actually stopped for a sing-along with fans prior to making that appearance.
He also engaged in a pretty great Awesome-Off with Jimmy Fallon earlier in the week. You should watch it.
