Justin Bieber achieves by far his best sales week this week, as Purpose (his sixth #1 album) opens with 649K, 522K of which are proper sales. His previous best was 374K for Believe in 2012. As for One Direction, this is their first album to miss #1 but they get better opening sales than Four, which started with 387K. Their two biggest debuts are Midnight Memories and Take Me Home, 546K and 540K respectively. Ellie Goulding drops from #3 to #19 and Little Mix plummet from #13 to #90. And if you scroll down far enough you'll see Kylie Christmas, a new entry at #184.

Justin Bieber Scores Sixth No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart With 'Purpose'
By Keith Caulfield | November 22, 2015 3:35 PM EST

Justin Bieber earns his sixth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his new release Purpose debuts atop the tally.

The set -- released Nov. 13 through SchoolBoy/Raymound Braun/Def Jam -- earned 649,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Nov. 19, according to Nielsen Music. That’s the largest weekly unit total for an album since the Billboard 200 began tracking popularity based on overall equivalent units earned in December of 2014. (It beats the debut week of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, which launched with 535,000 units.)

Further, Purpose sold 522,000 in pure album sales -- Bieber’s largest sales week ever. It surpasses his previous high, logged with Believe sold 374,000 in its first week back in 2012. Also impressive, Purpose’s 522,000 is the biggest sales week for an album since Taylor Swift’s 1989 debuted with 1.29 million (week ending Nov. 2, 2014), and the largest for a male artist’s album since Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 bowed with 792,000 (week ending Nov. 10, 2013).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Dec. 5-dated chart (where Bieber is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Purpose is the entertainer’s fifth straight set to open at No. 1, following Believe: Acoustic (in 2013), Believe (2012), Under the Mistletoe (2011) and Never Say Never: The Remixes (EP) (2011).

Before that, Bieber also hit the chart with My Worlds Acoustic (No. 7 in Dec. 2010), My World 2.0 (No. 1 in April 2010) and My World (EP) (No. 5 in April 2010).

Bieber leads a very busy week on the Billboard 200, where a near-record eight albums debut in the top 10. It’s only the fourth time in chart history we’ve had eight debuts in the region. It last happened on the list dated May 21, 2011. Before that, it occurred on Dec. 4, 2010 and Oct. 17, 2009.

Behind Bieber on the new Billboard 200 is the also-arriving One Direction, which launches at No. 2 with Made In the A.M. (459,000 units; 402,000 in pure album sales).

Impressively, this week marks the first time two albums have sold at least 400,000 in the same week since Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed a Dream and Alicia Keys’ The Element of Freedom sold 661,000 and 417,000, respectively, in the week ending Dec. 20, 2009. Further, the Bieber/One Direction combo is the first time two debuting albums sold more than 400,000 in the same frame since Kanye West’s Graduation and 50 Cent’s Curtis opened with 957,000 and 691,000 in the week ending Sept. 16, 2007.

Certainly, interest in the Bieber vs. One Direction battle for No. 1 stirred sales for both albums. The two sets sold far more than initially predicted. Before their release, industry forecasters suggested each title was tracking to start with around 300,000 in pure album sales.

Also starting in the new top 10: Logic’s The Incredible True Story (No. 3), Jeezy’s Church In These Streets (No. 4), Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over (No. 5), Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Letters From the Labyrinth (No. 7), Alessia Cara’s Know-It-All (No. 9) and Kirk Franklin’s Losing My Religion (No. 10).

Notably, the Def Jam label owns three out of the top four albums (Bieber, Logic and Jeezy) and four in the top 10 (Cara is also on Def Jam). The last label to score three out of the top four on the chart was Columbia Records on June 16, 2012. That week, John Mayer’s Born and Raised at No. 1, Adele’s 21 (on XL/Columbia) was No. 2 and One Direction’s Up All Night (on SYCO/Columbia) was No. 4.

Near-Record Eight Albums Debut in Top 10 on Billboard 200 Chart
By Keith Caulfield | November 22, 2015 3:30 PM EST

A near-record eight debuts arrive in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated Dec. 5), led by Justin Bieber’s Purpose at No. 1 and One Direction's Made in the A.M. at No. 2.

It’s only the fourth time in chart history we’ve had eight debuts in the region. It last happened on the list dated May 21, 2011. Before that, it occurred on Dec. 4, 2010 and Oct. 17, 2009.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Dec. 5-dated chart (where Bieber is No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Also starting in the top 10: Logic’s The Incredible True Story (No. 3), Jeezy’s Church In These Streets (No. 4), Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over (No. 5), Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Letters From the Labyrinth (No. 7), Alessia Cara’s Know-It-All (No. 9) and Kirk Franklin’s Losing My Religion (No. 10).

For One Direction, Made In the A.M. gives the vocal quartet its fifth straight album to debut in the top two of the chart, following four consecutive No. 1 albums. The new set launches with 459,000 in equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 19, according to Nielsen Music (of which 402,000 are in pure album sales). That sales start surpasses the bow of the group’s last album, 2014’s Four, which entered the list with 387,000 sold.

Rapper Logic launches at No. 3 on the new Billboard 200 with The Incredible True Story (135,000 units; 118,000 in album sales). It’s Logic’s best rank yet on the chart, and his highest sales frame. (He previously hit the top 10 with Under Pressure in 2014, which debuted and peaked at No. 4).

Jeezy jumps onto the new Billboard 200 at No. 4 with Church In These Streets (107,000 units; 98,000 in album sales). It’s his seventh consecutive top 10 album (his entire chart history), and follows the No. 2-peaking Seen In All: The Autobiography in 2014.

Country singer Chris Young debuts at No. 5 with I’m Comin’ Over (65,000 units; 57,000 in album sales). It’s the second-largest sales week for Young, as only the debut of his 2011 album Neon (73,000) was bigger.

The new album’s title track recently gave Young his sixth No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart (dated Nov. 28). It’s his first chart-topper on the list since 2012’s “You” (Feb. 11, 2012).

Last week’s No. 1, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller, falls to No. 6 with 53,000 units (down 57 percent).

Trans-Siberian Orchestra collects its third top 10 album as Letters From the Labyrinth starts at No. 7 with 46,000 units (nearly all from pure album sales). The act also hit the region with Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night) (EP) in 2012 (No. 9) and Night Castle in 2009 (No. 5).

The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness drops 4-8 with 43,000 units (down 8 percent).

Nearly the end of the top 10, Alessia Cara’s debut full-length album Know-It-All arrives at No. 9 with 36,000 units (22,000 in pure album sales). The album was led by her hit single “Here,” which has so-far peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Rounding out the top 10 is gospel superstar Kirk Franklin with his new album Losing My Religion, which debuts at No. 10 with 35,000 units (33,000 in album sales). It’s the fifth top 10 effort for Franklin, who last hit the chart in 2011 with the No. 5-peaking Hello Fear.

I think this is a really key point. It was a genius marketing move to pit the two acts/their rabid online fanbases against each other and was surely hugely mutually beneficial. 1D's camp have ensured they're bowing out (sorry Joseph! :/) on a really impressive high rather than getting another #1 on declining sales, while Justin's transition to credible artiste~ has all the more impact. I think it was Umi who said recently that 1D's waning overall popularity shouldn't be overshadowing what they're still capable of achieving (I'm paraphrasing magic.gif) - for an X Factor UK group to be clocking up their fifth US top 2 album on sales of 400k+ five years into their career is absolutely huge in relation to the world's biggest acts, and really should be celebrated.
