One Direction Make History by Debuting at No. 1 on Hot 200


Harry Styles and his bandmates soar to the first position on the U.S. album chart with their debut album 'Up All Night'.

The boys from One Direction are celebrating a chart record. The British boyband become the first U.K. group to enter high at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200, thanks to their debut album "Up All Night" which sells 176,000 copies in its opening week.

They surpass the highest Hot 200 entry posted by Spice Girls on the U.S. album chart in February 1997. Back then, the all-female band landed at No. 6 with their album "Spice" before eventually peaking at the first spot and spending five non-consecutive weeks atop the list.

The accolade came hot on heels of One Direction's notable mark on Billboard Hot 100. Through "Up All Night" lead single "What Makes You Beautiful", the boys entered at No. 28, scoring a highest debut for any U.K. act since Jimmy Ray landed at No. 26.

Additionally, it marked a highest entry by a U.K. group's debut single since Spice Girls' "Wannabe" bowed at No. 11 in 1997. "Thank you to all who've been there from day one. 1DHQ X," they tweeted.
