Justin Bieber Becomes 1st Artist in History With Five #1 Albums Before Turning 19

As his brand new album, BELIEVE ACOUSTIC (released January 29 th) soars to a #1 Soundscan debut on first week sales of 211,000 units, RBMG/Island Def Jam Music Group global superstar Justin Bieber the #1 most-followed person on Twitter with more than 33.9 million followers, and this weekend's (February 9 th) host and musical guest of NBC's Saturday Night Live, now becomes "the only artist in history to have five #1 albums before turning 19," as declared by Billboard.

"With this week's incredible success of BELIEVE ACOUSTIC, Justin continues to impress everyone with the magnitude of his artistry," said Steve Bartels, President & COO, Island Def Jam Music Group."His vision for BELIEVE ACOUSTIC was an organic extension of his growth as a musician on tour and in the studio, consummately devoted to his fans. The album reflects an artist who is not afraid to step outside of every stereotype, regardless of his age. Congratulations, Justin."

With BELIEVE ACOUSTIC shooting to #1 on iTunes in over 63 countries (including the U.S.), the Prince Of Pop, who turns 19 on March 1 st, also becomes "just the 10 th act to score a #1 album in four consecutive years," again according to Billboard. Justin joins a rare A-list of stars who accomplished the "consecutive" chart feat to date, led by Jay-Z (7 years), the Beatles (6 years), and Paul McCartney/Wings (5 years), to name the top three record holders.

BELIEVE ACOUSTIC offers acoustic versions of eight songs from Justin's Worldwide multi-platinum #1 album of 2012, Believe, including Worldwide superhits "Boyfriend," "As Long As You Love Me" (featuring Big Sean), and "Beauty And A Beat" (featuring Nicki Minaj). Delighted listeners will also find acoustic renditions of album tracks "Take You" and "Be Alright," as well as "She Don't Like The Lights" (originally a bonus track on the deluxe version of Believe). All acoustic tracks were co-produced by Justin Bieber and his guitarist Dan Kanter.
