One Direction's likely No. 1 bow will be announced on Nov. 26. Until then, the latest Billboard 200 chart, reflecting the sales week ending Nov. 16, will be unveiled on Nov. 19. It is presumed Swift's 1989 will lead for a third straight week.
One Direction's new album was released on Nov. 17 through SYCO/Columbia Records, and is the vocal quintet's fourth studio release. It follows the No. 1-debuting albums Up All Night (released in 2012), Take Me Home (2012) and Midnight Memories (2013). The latter album arrived atop the list with 546,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan -- the largest sales week for One Direction.
