OK! NEWS: JUSTIN BIEBER DOESN'T GO TO CHURCH DESPITE NEW JESUS TATTOO

Believe, the Biebs' fourth studio album that dropped on June 19, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 this week and managed to sell an impressive 374,000 copies. The Boyfriend singer even beat out Madonna for the top selling, first-week album of the year.

Madonna's MDNA was only slightly behind at 359,000 copies.

This should come as a relief to Justin, not that he ever really lacks in confidence, but carrying a tween base into adulthood (even though he isn't fully there yet, either) is never an easy feat and he knows as much.

Earlier this month during a visit to The Today Show, he expressed worry over becoming "just another teen heartthrob."

"I’m 18 and I have a lot of insecurities. At the end of the day, being in my position doesn’t get rid of those insecurities,” he told Matt Lauer. "I think [this album] is about proving people wrong and going out there and making good music, and going out there and performing better than everyone else."
