Oh no. Both Justin Bieber and One Direction’s new albums, which were supposed to be released on Nov. 13, leaked early on Nov. 7. Beliebers and Directioners are exploding on Twitter over the jaw-dropping leak.

Justin Bieber, 21, and One Direction have been hit with one heck of a shocker. Their upcoming albums, Purpose and Made In The A.M., were shockingly leaked in a few stores on Nov. 7. The leak comes just 6 days before their highly-anticipated albums were set to be released. Justin and 1D have put in so much time and effort on their new albums, and their fans are super angry their hard work is being leaked without their permission.

As soon as the news spread that the albums had been sold and leaked early, fans took to Twitter. The hashtag “#NoPlayPurposeandMITAM” began trending worldwide. Beliebers and Directioners haven’t always gotten along, but they are now uniting to respect Justin and 1D.

The albums were put on the shelves at Walmart and Target, according to Twitter users. A rumor spread online that the albums sold before the actual release date will not contribute to the first week of sales. has reached out for comment.


Justin and the boys of 1D — Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan — have been promoting their albums all over the world before Nov. 13. From dropping new songs to teases to cover art, fans have been getting so hyped up about new music from their heartthrobs. 

We can understand the frustration from devoted fans over the leak. This is Justin’s first album in three years, and One Direction’s last before their long break. The boys have worked extremely hard to create amazing new music, and for them to be caught by surprise like this is totally not cool. Stay strong, Beliebers and Directioners! We are in this together!
