It’s been a minute so it’s kinda hard putting together this post since I haven’t really kept up with albums sales for over a month. Fuck it. Let’s just jump into it and see what happens.
Justin Bieber topping the charts with his new album Purpose is really no surprise to anybody. He’s been on a media campaign to show the world he’s no longer a spoiled douchbag and it’s seemed to have worked. How well did it work? Well, Purpose sold 649,000 copies (522,000 of those being pure album sales) which makes it Biebs’ 6th #1 album and his best first week ever (It’s also the best opening first week in 2015 so far). That’s all cool and shit, but wait until next week when Adele comes through and wrecks everything. She’s on pace to sell 2.5 million copies (!?).
