Justin Bieber has been offline for the last few years because of his personal struggles. These challenges are the reason behind the gap existing between his previous album, Purpose and the latest one Changes, which he released on Valentine’s Day. This album explains in detail the changes that Justin Bieber has gone through since his last album. However, he continues to top in the album charts despite all the personal struggles.
The Changes album has made Bieber remain the best in the Billboard albums chart consecutively for seven times now in his career. The new album sold 231, 000 units in the first week, which is the third-highest performance in this year, after Eminem’s album Music To Be Murdered By, which sold 279, 000 units.
Halsey is the one who takes the bronze with his third album, Manic, which sold 239,000 units. The Changes made Bieber be the youngest artist to top consecutively for seven times – a record that Elvis Presley used to hold.
Now, let’s look at the other albums under top five in the Billboard albums chart. Artist 2.0, the third album by A Boogie, takes the second position and it sold 110,000 units. In the third position is The Slow Rush, by Tame Impala, and it sold 110,000 units – making the album the highest-charting ever for Tame. Roddy Ricch stands at no.4, with Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, a debut album that sold 70,000 units. The last one in the list is All About Luv, an all-English album by Monsta X that sold 52,000 units.
