Justin Bieber made a fierce comeback with his new album Changes, and his fans welcomed him back with open arms. This record easily topped the Billboard 200 chart, becoming his seventh album to do so.
This news may come as a surprise because Changes is only the fifth studio album by the Canadian singer – but there’s a catch! Bieber’s remix albums Never Say Never: The Remixes and Believe Acoustic also topped the chart in the past.
This isn’t the only thing that makes Bieber’s latest Billboard success so monumental. He also surpassed Elvis Presley to become the youngest solo artist to score seven no. 1 albums on the chart!
If bands were included in the calculation, Bieber wouldn’t have defeated The Beatles since all four members were younger than him when they topped the chart for the seventh time.
Changes came out on February 14th, and it’s Bieber’s first album in five years. He created a lot of buzz in the weeks leading up to its release with new single “Yummy” and YouTube docu-series Justin Bieber: Seasons.
