Justin Bieber’s ‘Changes’ Debuts a No. 1

Justin Bieber is back on top.

Over four since since his last album, the singer tops the Billboard 200 with his fifth studio album Changes. The set, which features the hit singles “Yummy” and “Intentions,” opens with 231,000 equivalent album units, of which 126,000 are in album sales.

Changes becomes Bieber’s first No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B Albums chart and seventh overall No. 1 following 2010’s My World 2.0, 2011’s Never Say Never: The Remixes EP and Under the Mistletoe, 2012’s Believe, 2013’s Believe: Acoustic, and Purpose, which topped the chart in December 2015 with 649,000 units.

A “super grateful” Bieber, who turns 26 next month, surpasses Elvis Presley to become the youngest solo artist to achieve seven No. 1 albums.

Following Bieber is A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, whose album Artist 2.0 debuts with 111,000 equivalent album units, thanks to streaming activity. The project, which features Young Thug, Roddy Ricch, and DaBaby, was the No. 1 most-streamed album of the week.

Following his death on Feb. 19, Pop Smoke remains in the top 10. His mixtape Meet the Woo 2 falls one spot to No. 8 in its second week, with an 11% increase in units (40,000).

Elsewhere in the top 10, Roddy Ricch​’s Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial slides 1-4 (70,000), Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding drops 2-6 (50,000), and Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By descends 3-9 with 39,000 equivalent album units.
