Justin Bieber scored his lowest ever U.K. chart position over Christmas (13) after his new album failed to scrape into Britain's top 40.

The 19-year-old pop star released his latest record, Journals, online last week (ends29Dec13) but it failed to set the U.K. charts alight and landed as a new entry at number 46 on Sunday (29Dec13).

The record was preceded by a 10-week campaign called Music Mondays during which the singer released one song a week to fans, and Bieber gave devotees a limited time to snap up the album by declaring it will be removed from online music sales site iTunes on 2 January (14).

Journals was also deemed a flop in Australia after the record limped into the album chart at number 35, with nationwide sales of just 4,067.

The chart lows mark the end of a terrible week for Bieber, during which his latest concert movie, Believe, flopped in America, making just $2 million (£1.3 million) in its opening weekend to land in 14th place. The film also failed to impress audiences in the U.K. and didn't make it into the box office top 10.
