JUSTIN BIEBER SHINES ON BILLBOARD 200 ALBUM CHART.
Canadian teen sensation, Justin Bieber, is holding the No 1 position on the Billboard 200 Album chart with his new release, ''My World 2.0''. The album has sold 283,000 copies in its first week in the market. 16 years old Bieber has become the youngest solo male artiste to become No 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, since August 1963 when 13- yr old Stevie Wonder was No 1 with ''Little Stevie Wonder and The 12 Year Old Genius'' album. Bieber's first album ''My World'' debuted at No 6 when it was released late last year by Island Records. Justin Bieber started out by posting his videos on YOUTUBE with the encouragement of his mother. Before then, he had thought himself to play the guitar, drums and the piano. The native of Stratford, Ontario, was soon spotted by Scooter Braun, who'd formerly worked for So So Def Records. Braun brought Justin to the United States and after convincing R&B singer, Usher Raymond, that he was really gifted, he was signed on. The rest as they say is history. RV believes Justin Bieber will become a great Canadian musician like Celine Dion, Bryan Adams and Shania Twain.
