Justin Bieber is a forerunner at the top of his career, continuously setting the trend of excellence with each track and album. The R&B singer has once again secured a spot on the Billboard charts – this time, with his first spiritual album, titled “Freedom.”
Since its release on Easter Sunday, April 4, the album containing six songs became fans favorites and earned 7,000 equivalent album units, according to data curated by MRC Data, and peaked at the No. 3 positions of Billboard’s Top Christain Albums.
A celebrated pop superstar, Justin Bieber is a multi-talented Canadian singer and songwriter. He pursued music from a young age taking part in a local competition where he came second place. After his mother recorded and uploaded a YouTube clip of her son performing, Justin went viral going from an unknown, untrained singer to a budding pop superstar with a big-time record deal with Usher within two years.
Acknowledged as a legendary vocalist with a unique style and sound, Justin made history as the first solo artist to have four singles hit the Top 40 before releasing a debut album. In 2009, his album, “My World,” went platinum in several countries. Fresh with ideas, Justin released “My World 2.0” in 2010, delighting his loyal fans with ten new songs.
In 2011, he ended the year on a perfect note, dropping the hit single “Never Say Never” with the holiday album “Under the Mistletoe.” He again dominated the charts with “Purpose” in 2015, selling millions of records in the US before the year ended.
In 2017, he carved his name in stone once again in a remix collaboration with Luis Fonsi for the song “Despacito.” Upon its release, a hit and fan favorite, “Despacito,” broke the record for most weeks at the number one position on the Top 100. In 2020, the pop star broke another record when his album, “Changes,” made him the youngest solo artist to have seven albums reach the top spot on the Billboard Hot 200, claiming a position once held by Elvis Presley.
With chart-topping hits year after year, Justin Bieber has once again claimed the leading spot on the Billboard 200 chart, with his tenth studio album, “Justice,” making it his eighth album to peak at No. 1 on the charts. The album “Justice,” which was released on March 18 via Raymond Braun/Def Jam, displaced the chart domination of Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album, which spent ten consecutive weeks in a row, all from its debut, at No. 1.
A hot mix of lyrics, sound and style, “Justice” gives credence to Justin Bieber’s talent and versatility as an artist as the album scored its second nonconsecutive week atop the Billboard charts. The album becomes his first multi-week No. 1 album since his 2010 album “My World 2.0,” which spent four consecutive weeks.
