Report: Justin Bieber Beats One Direction For No. 1


It appears Justin Bieber’s Purpose will top the charts this week.

We’re only a few days out from both Justin Bieber and One Direction’s album premieres (Nov. 13), but industry insiders predict Bieber’s Purpose will land at No. 1 this week, surpassing Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late mixtape’s record-setting sales. Bieber is predicted to debut with 525-550,000 units (450,000 will consist of pure album sales), reports Billboard.

Made In The A.M. is on track to sell 475,000 units (of which 400,000 to 425,000 could be pure album sales).

This means Bieber will have the biggest debut of the year — that is, until Adele’s 25 drops next week!

Congratulations Bieber! Let us know what you think in Exhale!
