TOP 15: IT'S NOT CLOSE. IT'S OVER. (UPDATE)
Justin Bieber Will Score a Decisive Win This Week

Justin Bieber will score a decisive win over One Direction on this week’s album and SPS charts and become the #1 album bow of 2015—until Adele's chart bow the following week.

The Bieber-1D face-off also marks the first time two albums have debuted over 400k in the same week since 2007, when Kanye West and 50 Cent squared off. Meanwhile, as many as nine debuts may land in the Top 15 this week, with Def Jam leading—not only at #1 but with three other new entries, two of them looking set to land in the Top 5. Here’s how it looks at midweek.

*Justin Bieber (Def Jam) 480-500k Sales, 580-600k SPS
