Just Bieber - My World 2.0

Just Bieber - My World 2.0

It isn’t terribly big news that Justin Bieber’s 2.0 version of his first album went number one this week on the album charts. It was pretty much expected that the youngster would reign supreme this week. What’s newsworthy is that the original version My World, which was released six months ago, shot up the charts as well and sits at number five.

According to Rolling Stone’s online website, My World is now at its highest point ever on the album charts.

In fact, Bieber was on such a roll, sales of My World are up 50 percent from the previous week as either hardcore fans or misinformed parents bought the two albums together. My World finished the week at Number Five, its highest point in 19 weeks on the charts, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Has this ever happened before? Has an artist who has released an updated version of an album which charted in the top ten, also had the original album chart in the top 10 at the same time? I don’t remember this happening before, but I could be wrong.

It’s not like releasing second versions of an album happens often either. What about Lady Gaga? If anyone knows, shoot me a comment.
