Justin Bieber shattered records last week when both his debut and sophomore album held the No. 1 and No. 5 spot on the Billboard Top 200. The 16-year-old pop star became the youngest male solo artist to have a No. 1 record on the chart since 1963.

"We did it!! My World 2.0 and My World are the #1 and #5 albums in the country!! 2 in the TOP 5!!" Justin wrote on his Facebook. "Thank U to Everyone out there...this is a Dream come true. Cant really even believe it. Kind of Shocked. So Grateful and So Blessed. Thank U. From a small town and youtube to this...we did this together and I really appreciate it. Thank u very much."

This week, however, Justin's sophomore album, 'My World 2.0,' dropped to the No. 2 spot. Who took No. 1? None other than Justin's mentor Usher. The Grammy-winning R&B singer sold over 329,000 copies of his latest album, 'Raymond v. Raymond,' in its first week.

But Justin shouldn't be upset. The Canadian star still sold over 290,000 copies of 'My World 2.0' in its second week, which is a 3 percent rise in sales. In fact, according to Billboard, Justin's accomplishment marks the first time a Tuesday-released No. 1-debuting album has sold more in its second week since 2002. Plus, if anyone was going to edge him out of the top spot, we're sure Justin is happy that it's Usher. %Poll-44081%
