Justin Bieber's birthday is coming up on March 1, and the soon-to-be 19-year-old will have more to celebrate than just another year in the books. The Canadian teen pop sensation is now the only artist to have five No. 1 albums before his 19th birthday.
Bieber relased "Believe Acoustic" on Jan. 29, and has sold 211,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. The "Baby" singer topped the Billboard charts with "My World 2.0" (2010), "Never Say Never: The Remixes" (2011), "Under the Mistletoe" (2011), and "Believe" (2012), becoming the tenth person in history to have four No. 1 albums in consecutive years, the Billboard piece said.
Bieber is slated to host and be the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend (Feb. 9). According to his manager, Scooter Braun, Bieber hasn't had an easy week in rehearsals.
Beliebers, have no fear, he was back in the studio rehearsing the next day. Take a look at the teaser for the show below.
