Justin Bieber - Justin Bieber's Album Flops In The U.k.

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.
