Beliebers everywhere are going crazy right now!
Today marks the release of Justin Bieber‘s Believe Acoustic album. The 11-track project features eight acoustic renditions of songs off his 2012 Believe LP, and three brand new records: “Yellow Raincoat,” “I Would,” and “Nothing Like Us,” which is about his failed relationship with Selena Gomez.
This unplugged EP is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and why not? It’s the Biebs we’re talking about! JB currently has four albums that have been No. 1: My World 2.0, Under The Mistletoe, Believe, and Never Say Never: The Remixes. But if Believe Acoustic becomes his next album to top the charts, then Bieber will be the only artist in history to have five No. 1 albums before the age of 19. He’ll also join the exclusive ranks of artists who’ve scored No. 1 albums in four or more consecutive years like Jay-Z, The Beatles, Elton John, and arguably his female equivalent Miley Cyrus.
But can Justin Bieber do it? C’mon! Again, it’s the Biebs we’re talking about. There’s a reason why Oprah compared Justin Bieber to the King of Pop during their Next Chapter interview together.
It’s because Justin Bieber personifies what it means to make H.I.S.T.O.R.Y, being that He Is Someone That Occasionally Reminds You he might very well be one of hip-pop’s greatest, evident through achievements he’s garnered in his unbridled career.
