The UK boy band One Direction made history as their debut album Up All Night entered the US Billboard 200 chart at #1 with over 176,000 copies sold. This makes One Direction the first British group ever to debut at #1 in the US with their debut album release. The album has already been #1 in England. 176,000 is an impressive weekly sales figure. They have had some great songs written for them to date. Time will tell if they are able to continue topping the charts with future albums and become as big as some of the biggest boy bands of the past. Take a look:
