Justin Bieber's New Album Dead on Arrival in the UK

It failed to hit the top forty...
Bieber fever is fading in the UK. The Official Charts Company has posted this week's top-selling albums chart and Justin Bieber's Journals failed to make the top forty, charting in at #46 in its first week and now falling all the way to #94.
The album was released as an iTunes-only album, though that didn't stop Beyonce's from being a huge hit. More telling to its low placement is the fact that ten of the tracks were previously released as part of Bieber's "Music Mondays" weekly single releases so fans were able to buy those in advance and then use "Complete My Album" to buy the rest.
Bieber's last album was Believe in 2012, which debuted at #1 on the UK chart.
