Justin Bieber’s My World 2.0 returns to #1 on The Billboard 200, replacing Usher’s Raymond V Raymond, which debuted in the top spot last week. Bieber, 16, is the youngest male solo artist ever to top the chart for two or more weeks. Ricky Nelson was 17 in 1958 when he topped the chart for two weeks with Ricky. Bobby Brown was 19 in 1989 when he headed the chart for three weeks with Don’t Be Cruel.Stevie Wonder’s Little Stevie Wonder/The 12 Year Old Genius, released in 1963 when he was 13, managed just one week on top.

My World 2.0 has sold 676,000 copies in its first three weeks. It took Bieber’s My World EP seven weeks to sell that many copies.My World 2.0 has sold more copies in three weeks than Jonas Brother’s latest studio album, Lines, Vines And Trying Times, has sold in its entire run. JoBros’ album has sold 635,000 copies since its release in June.

“Baby,” the biggest hit from Bieber’s current album, has sold 1,525,000 digital copies. Bieber owes a big debt to Ludacris, whose rap gives the light, poppy record a bit of texture and heft. “Baby” is closing in on “One Time” as Bieber’s top seller to date. “One Time” has sold 1,815,000 copies in the past 40 weeks.
