Justin Bieber's new album 'Believe' may have only been released just under two weeks ago but already it has become the biggest selling album of the year so far in the US.

The singer's new effort is currently at number one on the Billboard chart after selling 374,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

'Believe' has also eclipsed the 291,000 copies sold of 'My World 2.0' for its second week in April 2010.

Adele's '21' still holds the record for the biggest week of sale, having sold 730,000 copies the week after her Grammy Awards wins.

Keith Caulfield, Billboard's associate director of charts siad: "That Bieber can have the biggest opening week of the year says that he's doing a good job. It's always tough making that transition from tweeny-teeny pop star to young adult. It's a challenge, and he seems to be doing quite well so far."

Bieber has reached number one with previous releases with 'My World 2.0', 'NeverSay Never: The Remixes' and 'Under the Mistletoe'.

His 2009 debut, My World, peaked at just number five.
