Justin Bieber on course for fifth U.S. No.1 album

Canadian superstar Justin Bieber recently unveiled his brand new album, 'Believe Acoustic', and it's already set to top the U.S. charts.

The record was released at the beginning of the week (January 29) and now reports that the cut is set to shift between 180,000 to 190,000 copies when the sales week ends on Sunday, February 3.

If he maintains the strong figures, Bieber will shoot straight in at No.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, giving him his fifth overall American No.1 record, which is an impressive feat.

In addition to this achievement, it would also give him a number one album in four consecutive years, which is an milestone only nine other acts have managed in the U.S. chart's 57-year history.

Tweeting about the release a few days ago, Bieber thanked his fans for "respecting" such a personal piece of work and wrote: "Seeing alot of people out there loving but even more so respecting the #BELIEVEacoustic album. means alot. It is all about the Music. thanks."
