One Direction made history when their debut album Up All Night entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at #1 with over 176,000 copies sold. This makes chart history as the first British group ever to debut at #1 in the U.S. with their debut album release. Up All Night went straight to #1 on the digital chart within minutes of its official release on March 13th.
One Direction gained notoriety in 2010 after appearing on U.K.’s The X-Factor. Their global smash debut album, Up All Night, entered the charts at #1 in 12 countries and has been certified triple platinum in Ireland, double platinum in the U.K. & Australia and platinum in New Zealand.
Their BRIT Award winning debut single “What Makes You Beautiful” entered the charts at #1 in both the U.K. and Ireland. In the U.S., “What Makes You Beautiful” sold more than 131,000 copies in its first week, debuting at #12 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart. Their #28 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 marked the highest debut from a British Group’s debut single since the Spice Girls in 1998.
One Direction are Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of the group hail from the U.K., save for Horan, who is from Ireland. All five of the boys (ages 18-20) auditioned for U.K.’s The X-Factor in 2010 as solo artists. However, at the suggestion of Simon Cowell, they joined forces as a group, quickly becoming one of the competition’s most popular acts of all time, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic fan-base along the way.
