The arrival of IDJís Believe occurs Justin time for music retailers around the country, with impressive one-day sales turning them into true Beliebers.
Thatís right, the young teenpop starís new album, his third (if you donít count My World 2.0 and do count last yearís holiday album, Under the Mistletoe) will debut at #1 next week with between 420-440k in sales, his best individual total to date, and the highest of the year.

Kenny Chesney should've released his album last week
Let's capture the moment
Cause even forever ain't forever
I swear by the moment
Cause together ain't promised forever
Let's live in the moment
As long as we got each other
I'm prepared to die in the moment
