Justin Bieber Takes Back #1 Spot from Usher
Justin Bieber has definitely taken the pop music world by storm.
Last week, Justin Bieber was ousted by Usher’s Raymond v. Raymond at the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 list.
Justin Bieber sold 102,000 copies of the CD in the week ending April 11th, 2010, according to Nielson SoundScan.
Perhaps one of the catalyst to Justin Bieber’s rise back to the #1 spot was his appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
The 16 year old pop star appeared on SNL in an unusual selection by the late night TV show.
It was unclear exactly what audience SNL was trying to reach by having Justin Bieber on the show, but no doubt, it worked in driving viewers to watch SNL.
And it’s possible that Justin Bieber’s appearance on SNL gave him the boost he needed to get back on top of the Billboard 200 list.
