Justin Bieber’s Purpose will beat One Direction’s Made in the A.M. in the highly watched race to claim the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Billboard won’t announce its final sales tallies until Sunday, but Hits, a rival music industry trade publication, has already announced its final numbers. The two sources are usually very close in their findings.

According to Hits, Bieber’s album sold 504K copies in its first week, while 1D’s album sold 414K.
