Soulful crooner Michael Bublé sold more records than Adele and Justin Bieber in the weeks leading up to Christmas, Reuters reports.

The Sinatra-like singer’s album, “Christmas,” sold nearly a half-million copies, topping the charts above younger pop stars and rappers. His album has sold 2.43 million copies overall.

Bublé has been compared to Old Blue Eyes for his deep baritone voice and bluesy style.

Could this mark the return of old school musicians reigning the pop charts? Not likely.

The rest of the Billboard top five reads like a tween’s iPod, with Adele, Young Jeezy, Justin Bieber and Drake rounding out the list.
