Justin Bieber's new album Believe, which came out on June 19, is on track for the biggest debut sales frame of the year, according to Billboard. Industry figures suggest that the album will sell in the 410,000 to 440,000 range by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, June 24, 2012. Thus, "Believe" will most certainly open at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week.
In addition, if sales continue to hold strong throughout the week, it will surpass 2012's current debut champion, Madonna's "MDNA”, which moved 359,000 copies during its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan. The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 and the final sales figures for "Believe” will be revealed on the morning of Wednesday, June 27.
