“Bigger Than the Beatles?” asks HuffPo today. “One Direction has made Billboard history. The British boy band topped the Billboard 200 chart with their debut album Up All Night, making them the first UK group to debut at No. 1 with their debut album. Up All Night debuted on the charts with 176,000 units sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. One Direction bested the previous record set by pop group the Spice Girls in 1997 when their debut album Spice entered the charts at No. 6. One Direction’s single “What Makes You Beautiful” entered the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at No. 28, which also marked the highest debut for a UK group since the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” debuted at No. 11 in 1997.”
And I’m thisclose to being over them.
