Despite a release week crowded with big-name, high-profile albums, One Direction‘s sophomore set ‘Take Me Home’ is expected to easily cruise into the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

As if anyone doubted the spending power and disposable income of teenage girls! Directioners answered the call, and went crazy, crazy, crazy at music retailers, as the album is looking to debut with at least 500,000 albums sold.

Billboard reports that the figure could be around 575,000 when the final tally is revealed next Wednesday, Nov. 21. The album could notch the third-largest sales week of the year, after Taylor Swift‘s monstrous ‘Red,’ which moved 1.2 million copies, and Mumford & Sons’ ‘Babel,’ which shifted 600,000 copies.

It’ll be quite a bow for 1D, who will dwarf Christina Aguilera‘s ‘Lotus.’

The band’s debut ‘Up All Night’ topped the Top 200 back in March, moving 176,000 units. It was the first time an album from a U.K. group debuted at No. 1.

So, we’ll offer an advance congrats to Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson on a monster debut. Nice job!
