Justin Bieber‘s fans have a big reason to celebrate right now – his album Purpose is expected to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart this week!
The 21-year-old singer will achieve his sixth number one album if the numbers hold up and he will be beating out One Direction‘s new album Made in the AM in the process.
Purpose is expected to sell 450,000 copies in its first week. The equivalent album units with streaming and other factors built in is 525,000.
One Direction will debut at number two on the chart this week with pure album sales of 400,000 to 425,000 copies. The group is expected to achieve 475,000 equivalent album units with streaming added in.
Both albums are performing a lot stronger than originally predicted. Industry experts had pegged both albums to debut with around 300,000 copies sold, so it shows that the fans sure are turning out in full force!
