Justin Bieber vs. One Direction: Who will get to #1?

It's a close race for the top spot!

Justin Bieber and One Direction both have brand new albums out this week – and the race to #1 is heating up!

In Australia, Justin has been beating 1D on the iTunes Chart ever since the albums went on sale on Friday - but the race is too close to call, as One Direction have traditionally had stronger physical sales than the ‘What Do You Mean?’ crooner.

Over in America, early sales predictions have 1D just edging ahead of Bieber, with projected sales of over 400,000 units. This is largely thanks to Target’s 1D exclusive album, where albums have difference covers for each member.

Justin is predicted to sell around 360,000 albums in the US this week.

Who are you rooting for?
