It’s going to be an epic battle of album sales between the Biebs and 1D on Nov. 13! And just in case fans were excited enough, the two superstar acts decided to share their new cover images on the exact same day, proving that their feud is still far from over. For his part, Justin looks smoking hot on his Purpose album cover, which shows him posing with his head bowed and showing off his shirtless and heavily tattooed body (naturally). As has become his custom, Justin took to Instagram to reveal a series of black and white Instagram shots on Oct. 9, which puzzled together to make out the album art. Swoon!
Not to be outdone, 1D sent their fans into an immediate frenzy when they revealed not only the name of their next single, “Perfect,” but also the track’s official cover art. The photo shows Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles posing side by side, each giving off a smoldering gaze, except for Liam, who shows off a winning smile. Harry was the first to announce the news of the upcoming single on Twitter, writing, “Our next single is called ‘Perfect.’ Looking forward to you hearing it, hope that you like those apples.”
Meanwhile, it appears that the friendly competition between the two musical acts hasn’t been lost on the fellas, who have playfully egged each other on in the wake of their latest announcements. Justin and Niall have even gone so far as to make a bet on whose album will sell the most. “Niall and Justin are betting on whose album will have a more successful release,” an insider tells us. “Niall along with the other guys, and Justin will continue to take jabs at each other for having the same release day, but for the most part they are playing it up and having fun. Their bet includes something fun, kind of like a dare that the loser will have to do.” Let’s just hope is has nothing to do with getting naked in public. After all, Justin’s already won that battle.
