Justin Bieber did it…he heat out One Direction for the #1 album on the Billboard 200 album charts. Pretty sure he will hit number 2 next week but still! Justin’s Purpose (released November 13th) sold 649,000 copies during it’s first week adjusted sales.
Purpose is Justin’s sixth album to debut at #1, and the highest one-week sales tally of his career. I’m not surprised that Justin did so well. The promotes the hell out his projects!
And he’s heading out on tour next March. The 50+ city, 58-date tour, promoted by AEG Live, will bring Bieber’s dynamic live show to U.S. cities including Denver, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Chicago, Boston and Miami, as well as throughout Eastern and Western Canada. There will be two-night runs at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Staples Center in Los Angeles, Chicago’s Allstate Arena, and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. The North American leg of the Purpose World Tour will conclude on July 18, 2016, at New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden.
