Kenny Chesney’s new album Welcome to the Fishbowl faces some stiff competition for its chart debut, going up against Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber’s just-released “Believe” album has all but locked up a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart next week. Industry sources suggest the album will sell in the range of 410,000 to 440,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, June 24.

Chesney’s “Welcome to the Fishbowl” is seemingly headed for a No. 2 debut with around 200,000. His last set, 2010’s “Hemingway’s Whiskey,” entered at No. 1 with 183,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“Welcome to the Fishbowl” will likely secure Chesney his 10th top 10 album on the Billboard 200, and his 11th No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart.
