Justin Bieber's Believe album released today is now poised to blow Madonna in the wind and idle up behind Adele's 21 by the time his first week's sales figures for the hit are released, according to Billboard.
And that's just a little bit embarrassing for those reviewers that had unkind or less than complimentary things to say about the pop crooner who, yes, may one day surpass Michael Jackson musically.

That's fine by the Biebs, as Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, a 2012 mayoral candidate hopeful, just deemed today Justin Bieber Appreciation Day in the city. And that's on the heels of Justin Bieber's Believe unbelievable music sales today.
The 18-year-old music hotshot has a skyrocketing new album on the brink to be his biggest seller yet, is being compared to Michael Jackson and Kurt Cobain musically, and just had the city of Manhattan--and maybe the future mayor, laud him publicly with his own official "Day" label. Does it get any better than this for Selena Gomez's "Boyfriend"?
