Not even a burgeoning tabloid scandal and potential illegitimate children can stop the Bieber album sales train: The Biebs’ Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe, sold 214,000 copies this week, assuring Bieber will dominate the tween market for at least the next two months.
The chart news we’re most interested in though, is the fact that Wale has hit number two, as his sophomore album, Ambition, is the number two album in the country, selling 163,000 copies. Apparently pairing with Rick Ross is a bigger sales boon than being signed to Interscope and having Lady Gaga on a single these days. Good to know.
Adele’s 21 stays in the top five in its 37th week on the charts. It’s total sales are now up to 4.3 million on the year. For more chart news, head to Hits Daily Double.
