Charts: Justin Bieber Gets No “Justice” as New Album Displaced at Number 1 After 1 Week, Topped on Singles Chart Too


Justin Bieber’s peaches have turned sour.

His new Justice album debuted at number 1 last week. But tomorrow, when week 2 is counted up, “Justice” will fall to the second spot.

The new numberĀ  will be Rod Wave’s “Soulfly.” Who is Rod Wave? A nobody, but the Bieber album was a weak launch, the fans are fickle, Travis Bickle.

Bieber is also vanquished on the singles chart, where his “Peaches” — in which he’s a guest star and the least important part of a trio featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon — is going rotten at the hands of Lil Nas X. “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” is a phenom no one saw coming. Lil Nas X’s provocative, controversial salute to Twerking Satan, coupled with a hot video. will be at the top of the chart.

But “Peaches” has paid off for someone: the aforementioned Giveon, whose album has jumped to number 20 out of nowhere. It’s on Not So Fast Records, distributed by Sony’s Epic. Sylvia Rhone gets the win.

Numbers are thanks to hitsdailydouble and Buzz Angle.
