British boy band One Direction made history as their debut album Up All Night landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, with over 176,000 copies sold. This makes chart history as the first British group ever to debut at No. 1 in the US with their first album release. Lots of British acts and artists have landed at No. 1. But none have done on their first album...until now.
Congrats to the boys, who competed on the British edition of X Factor in 2010.
