iTUNES TOP 10s: BLACK FRIDAY EDITION

It’s Turnover Friday as well as Black Friday, but Adele hasn’t budged from the tops of the two charts. No shocker there—which makes the big story Justin Bieber, who occupies 30% of each leaderboard while also behaving like a gentleman and clearing some space on each chart for his ex, Selena Gomez. We kid—Selena's LP was one of numerous titles on sale in iTunes' $5.99/6.99 Black Friday blowout, as were the entries from Taylor, Blake, CarriePentatonix and the Biebs himself.

Said sale goosed Bieber's 2011 collection Under the Mistletoe back up the chart, where it's presently perched five slots above the PTX Christmas set (still a bargain at $7.99), but just one above the group’s new self-titled LP ($6.99).

Preorder-wise, Chris Brown leads the way with his 12/18 release, while Coldplay is next at #15. For the record, One Direction can’t seem to make up any ground on the Biebs; Made in the A.M. is languishing at #19.
