There seems to be no limit to their success as One Direction continues to smash records. Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles’ latest effort, Midnight Memories, has nabbed the number one spot in 26 different countries, making it the band’s third number one album.
Midnight Memories has proven to be the groups most mature and personal album to date. Which is clearly hitting all the right notes with fans. According to Nielsen SoundScan, One Direction sold 62,000 copies in Canada and 546,000 copies in the States during its first week. They are the first ever pop group in U.S. chart history to have their first three albums debut at number one. Midnight Memories has also became the U.K.’s fastest selling album of not only 2013, but of the last three years.
In addition, their massively successful 1D Day live stream has officially become the biggest YouTube music live stream ever. With 3.5 millions views, Directioners just couldn’t get enough of the guys’ shinanigans during the seven hour YouTube stream.
