One Direction is doing some extra celebrating these days – not only is their album Midnight Memories at the top of the charts, but they’ve made history at the same time.
Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne can be proud to say that they’re the first group ever to see all of their first three albums debut at number one!
Billboard magazine says Midnight Memories is only the third pop group in SoundScan records to achieve this feat, and joins fellow boy bands N Sync and the Backstreet Boys in this distinction.
In a recent Q&A with Billboard, the band talked about their exhaustive touring schedule that takes them all over the world. “Luckily, I have my four best mates on the road with me to keep me from getting lonely; of course we all miss home at times,” Niall said. “Who wouldn’t, being on the road all year long? Wouldn’t give it up for anything though.”
About the future of the band, the boys assure Directioners there’s more One Direction to come. “We just love what we’re doing right now. We’ve got no intention to change that,” Liam said. And Louis added, “Who knew we would be here three years ago? We’re just going to focus on tomorrow and go from there.
