One Direction sure are some record-breaking blokes!
It looks like breaking the record for the most viewed vid in 24 hours on VEVO for their single, Live While We’re Young, wasn’t the only achievement they’ve seen recently!
The track has just become the highest selling first week single by a UK artist in the States!
LWWY is currently number one on the charts and has already sold 341,000 copies in ONE week, making it the biggest opening week sales for a song by a non-US artist EVER!!!
Wow! What a HUGE accomplishment!
After hearing the news, 1D’s blondie Niall Horan celebrated and said:
“We're so happy with the success of the single in the USA and can't wait for everyone to hear our new album. Thank you to all the fans once again!"
What a year it’s been for the boys, with their debut album, Up All Night, becoming the top selling debut album of 2012 thus far!
It sounds like Harry, Louis, Liam, Zayn and Niall don’t have to worry about the dreaded sophomore slump, once their second album, Take Me Home is released on November 13th!
We're certain their devoted Directioners will ensure that they show no signs of stopping!
