With his newest album, Believe, Justin Bieber can claim the rights to the best-selling debut week this year. Believe sold 374,000 copies in its first week, exceeding the debut weeks of his previous albums Mistletoe (210,000 copies) and My World (282,000 copies). Madonna’s MDNA sold 359,000 upon its debut in April.
Bieber’s label, Island Def Jam, also revealed to Billboard that his next single from Believe will be “As Long As You Love Me,” a dubstep-laced track with a featured guest spot from rapper Big Sean. Though the song was already released as a preview track for the album, the label will begin pushing it on radio starting July 9th.
