(CBS) Christmas came early for Justin Bieber.

His holiday album "Under the Mistletoe" debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200.

Despite defending himself in a paternity suit, the 16-year-old has been busy promoting the album. He even switched on the holiday lights in London this week.

The bottom line is that "Mistletoe" has sales of 210,000 in its first week, according to Billboard.com

This compares with sales of 133,000 for Miranda Lambert's "Four the Record" (No.3); of 132,000 for Susan Boyle's second album "Someone to Watch Over Me" (No.4); and of 105,000 for Florence + the Machine's "Ceremonials" (No. 6).
