Pop music might have a new rivalry brewing.

Justin Bieber‘s release date for his upcoming album is Nov. 13, the same day One Direction is set to debut Made In the A.M., their fifth and final studio album before taking an extended hiatus.

Although they’re still weeks away from competing on the album charts, it seems Bieber, 21, is already thinking about who will take the top spot. In a new video circulating online, the "What Do You Mean?" singer looks at the camera and says, “The face you make when you come out with an album the same day as Justin Bieber.” Then he makes a scared and silly expression.

Should Beliebers and One Directioners have bad blood this fall, it wouldn’t be the first time pop stars have sparked rivalries in recent months. Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj had a heated Twitter exchange in July, only to put it past them with a surprise performance at the MTV VMAs in August.

Minaj later suggested she had beef with Miley Cyrus on the VMAs stage, calling out the host for comments she made in an interview.

And then there’s Drake and Meek Mill’s trading of diss tracks – although Meek’s lack of response to Drake’s latest has put the feud on ice for now.
