The Numbers Game: Justin Bieber Scores Fifth #1 Album


The Numbers Game

I thought Justin Bieber‘s career may have been on the down turn (Seeing that he smoking weed & drinking lean these days). But what do I know? His latest album Believe Acoustic, which is an acoustic version of his album Believe, sold 211,000 units and claimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 charts. Five #1 albums, a #1 album in four consecutive years, and all before the age of 19. Crazy.

Sidenote #1: I just didn’t feel like putting a picture of Justin Bieber up today.
Sidenote #2: Shout out to Charlie Wilson with the #4 album in the country.

Hip-Hop + R&B sales for the week of January 30th.

Young Barry White. The geek out of the bunch. He is also Jay-Z’s biggest fan. He looks like your cousin from the burbs. He is “Pro Black” (not anti-white, just “Pro Black”). Probably the wittiest out of the bunch. It is said that he got fired from the same job three times.

    If Macklemore goes gold, does hiphop win? I mean with him being an indie artist and all?

    • B-Easy

      A big win. Plus the fact that Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are doing commercials for NBA and stuff like that is crazy for an indie artist.

    • H2O

      He probably won’t go gold for a while. He seems to be slowing down. But I think he’ll make it.

      • B-Easy

        They have a triple platinum single that is also the #1 song in the country. All independent. They’s be fine.
