Believe it: Justin Bieber has made history with his new album.

Believe Acoustic has debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart, with first-week sales of 211,000, according to Nielsen Soundscan.  It's Justin's fifth disc to top the charts, which means he's the only artist ever to have scored five #1 albums before the age of 19.  Previously, he and Miley Cyrus were tied: both she and he had four #1 albums before reaching that age.

In addition, Justin is now only the 10th artist in the history of the Billboard chart to reach #1 with an album four years in a row.

Another thing Justin will do before the age of 19 is host Saturday Night Live and serve as musical guest.  A series of promos for his stint on the show this weekend are now online , and they show him goofing around with SNL cast member Kenan Thompson .  In the funniest one of the bunch, Justin introduces himself and says he'll be the host and musical guest this weekend.  "Wait a minute, you're Justin Bieber?" asks Kenan.  "This is too funny.  You're not gonna believe this.  All this time, for like three years, I've been stalking the wrong dude!"
