Bieber's new studio album, "Believe," has exploded to No. 1 in 30 countries, including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia and Brazil. Released in the U.S. last week, "Believe" has taken the No. 1 Soundscan position and is the biggest debut of the year. In 2009, Bieber became the first solo artist in history to send four songs from a debut album into the Billboard Hot 100's Top 40, prior to the album's release: "One Time," "One Less Lonely Girl," "Love Me" and "Favorite Girl." Three years later, history repeats itself, as "Believe" is buoyed by four hit singles inside the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week: the album's first single, "Boyfriend"; "All Around the World," featuring Ludacris; "Die In Your Arms"; and the album's second single, "As Long As You Love Me," featuring Big Sean. With worldwide album sales in excess of 15 million units, Bieber has dominated pop culture and social media for more than three years. He has more than 44 million Facebook fans, more than 23 million Twitter followers, and more than three billion YouTube views, making him the most popular YouTube artist of all time.
