The battle between Justin Bieber’s #Purpose and One Direction’s (possibly final album) #MadeInTheAM is reaching fever pitch.
After months of back-and-forth drama and stan wars, the final victor will be crowned by the end of the week.
Or, you could just buy Troye Sivan’s album Blue Neighbourhood, which is coming out in a few weeks, instead.
As of writing, Justin Bieber is projected to open above One Direction in the United States. One Direction is predicted to top Justin in their home turf in the UK.
