Move over Elvis Presley. Justin Bieber’s got you beat. As per BBC, “Justin Bieber’s seventh album, Changes, has debuted at the top of the US Billboard chart – beating a record set by Elvis Presley 59 years ago.”
An Amazing Achievement
A whopping 59 years was a nice run, and now the 25-year-old is the youngest musician to hold the record for seven #1 albums (Presley was 26).
According to BBC, “Changes, which is Bieber’s first album in four years, sold 231,000 copies last week to reach number one.”
Thanking The Women Who’ve Supported Him
Bieber has his wife Hailey Baldwin as well as fellow musician Ariana Grande to thank for Changes being made in the first place.
As we reported on The Things, Bieber said Grande helped him overcome his anxiety about getting back on stage to perform. And his wife provided the inspiration and motivation he needed to work on fresh new songs. In addition, their relationship provided the context for his music which made up the album.
Way To Go!
Congrats to Bieber on this amazing achievement. He has been working on his craft since he was a teen, and the future has so much to hold for the popstar. Fans continue to support Bieber, and at this rate, he’ll continue to top the charts and perhaps break another record before we know it.
