Comeback LP On-Track For Highest Debut Of The Year
Justin Bieber visited ‘The Tonight Show’ this week and had ample reason to smile.
The pin-up’s new album ‘Purpose’ is on-course for a definitive chart win over rival act One Direction and by a (relative) landslide.
Led by ‘What Do You Mean?,’ the comeback project is set to sell 470k-490k Stateside (to 1D’s 420k) – which, if achieved, will mark the largest first-week debut this year.[Editor’s note: Of course, until the Adele avalanche hits next week].
Not resting his laurels, Bieber took to the stage on the Jimmy Fallon hosted show to perform current single ‘Sorry’ – which has, thus far, peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Call it a comeback.!

Trek Will Kick Off In US March 2016
Justin Bieber‘s new album may titled ‘Purpose,’ but ‘Redemption’ feels more apt.
On the eve of its release, the set – which arrives after a tricky few years for the singer – is being tipped for blockbuster success. This, thanks largely to the winning run of lead singles ‘What Do You Mean?’ and ‘Sorry.’
Capitalizing on the public’s renewed embrace of his music the 22-year-old has officially announced the ‘Purpose Tour.’
Set to kick off in Seattle next March, the US leg of the trek (the first to be unveiled) will wrap up in May 2016 before hitting international markets.

Comeback LP 'Purpose' Drops Nov. 13th
Justin Bieber‘s ‘Purpose’ promo train pulled into the UK this week.
With the like-titled album due in stores on November 13th, the 21-year-old is covering all bases (especially in light of his chart showdown with One Direction).
Today’s stop was BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards 2015, where the Canadian heartthrob served up a spirited showing of #1 single ‘What Do You Mean?’
Backed by an army of dancers, watch Bieber blaze is his own kind of way after the jump…
Justin Bieber continues to generate excitement around his forthcoming album ‘Purpose’ by taking to the pages of Billboard magazine for a spot of promotion.
Only right that that he rocks it cover first with a shot that sees him sport his brand new physique, tattoos while touting his “rebirth” as an artist.
Fans of the once troubled star will know that the last two years have seen struggle to maintain the All-American image he’d presented to the world after footage of him performing a racist number about African-Americans surfaced online.
‘Purpose’ hits retailers on November 13th.
Adele has been the name on everyone’s lips for the last two weeks.
The diva’s colossal return, as reported here, saw her newest release ‘Hello’ say hello to new VEVO and digital sales records and, as a result, become the expected chart-champion for this week’s refreshed Hot 100.
Falling far from short of expectations, the tune ousted The Weeknd from his 6-week chart reign at the top by moving over 1 million in downloads across last week and selling nearly 4 times as much as its nearest competitor, Justin Bieber‘s ‘Sorry’ (which shifted an impressive 277,000k its first week). Following at #2, ‘Sorry’s premiere on the charts marked the first time two non-U.S. acts debuted at #1 and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same week (second time overall following the 2003 #1 and #2 debuts of Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard‘s inaugural singles).
And, while Adele’s debut adds some much needed estrogen to the tally’s upper dectet, it’s still very much a man’s world. See what we mean below:
