It’s no secret that all the teen heartthrobs are social media kings. But their fans were in for a shock when Justin Bieber and Louis Tomlinson took potshots at each other on Snapchat! So, how many followers are supporting each act?
At a whopping 68 million followers on Twitter, Justin is the clear winner when it comes to social media! So, where does One Direction stand? Though the band has a following of 25.2 million on Twitter, the Biebs is lightyears ahead!
The F Word
Though he may be on shaky ground with his fans and the general public, Justin knows how to bring in the star power. So, which celebs have come out in support of Justin’s newest single? Kylie Jenner, Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Hilary Duff, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Shaquille O’Neal and Britney Spears… to name a few!
The Road to the Album
It’s no surprise that both artists’ lead singles, Where Are U Now and Drag Me Down, have sold well. But with the 2x Platinum certification, Justin is off to a better start!
A good album is best enjoyed live in concert. But which artist does better when it comes to concert sales? One Direction, whose Where We Are Tour is the 12th highest grossing tour of all time! Though the Biebs can sell out stadiums, too, One Direction are in another league entirely!
The Wild Card
Right now, it seems like both acts are going head to head. But there’s a very important wild card at play. This is One Direction‘s first studio album as a 4-member band. Will Zayn Malik‘s departure hurt their sales, or will the newfound sympathy and support boost them? We’ll find out on November 13!
