    Justin Bieber has Elvis Presley’s hairstyle and boyish looks but he also has the legendary performer’s ability to shatter records on the US charts. This week, Bieber’s Believe Acoustic set has topped the Billboard 200 and earned him a spot in the history books.

    With 211K copies sold, Believe Acoustic has earned Bieber his fifth consecutive #1 album on the Billboard 200. No other artist under the age of 19 years has scored as many chart-topping albums or EPs. Not even Miley Cyrus, who has 4 to her name, can claim that feat.

    Additionally, Bieber also has more #1 albums – My World 2.0, Never Say Never: The Remixes, Under the Mistletoe, Believe and Believe Acoustic – than any other Canadian act. He has surpassed the 4 leaders notched by Neil Young.
