Justin Bieber’s ‘Under the Mistletoe’ Likely to Debut at No. 1
The sales prognosticators over at Billboard are predicting that Justin Bieber's holiday set 'Under the Mistletoe' will debut at No. 1 on the Top 200 sales chart next week. We didn't doubt that the Beliebers would come out in full force to support their hero and his holiday set, and it appears that they answered the call. If the collection of fun, festive and spirit-filled tunes does debut at the top of the heap, it will be The Biebs' third No. 1 release! And he's only 17!
Insiders predict that the record will sell between 200,000 and 220,000 by the time the retail polls close next week. The final charts will be released on Wednesday morning.
The Biebs' last time at No. 1 was the 'Never Say Never: The Remixes' EP, which dropped on March 5 with 165,000 copies moved at that time. His only competition next week is Wale, Susan Boyle, Miranda Lambert and Florence + the Machine, but all of their expected first week tallies fall well south of Bieber's expected haul.
We'll offer an advance "congrats" to The Biebs, because this one is in the back. Now, the rest of you Beliebers need to go nab a copy and blast it when you start to decorate your Christmas tree and wrap presents! We're celebrating our holidays with a heaping helping of Justin Bieber Christmas songs.
