One Direction Makes History; Hits #1 in the U.S. with ‘Take Me Home’ Album

It seems like we’re always wishing a hearty congratulations to One Direction. And that’s not about to change today; the guys’ sophomore album, Take Me Home, just hit #1 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart with over 540,000 copies sold in the last week. This is huge considering that their freshman album, Up All Night, also debuted at #1 at the beginning of this year, making 1D the first British band to take the top spot twice in the States with its first two CDs.

And that’s not even half the reason Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne have to celebrate today as each of them had the honor of not only meeting the Queen of England, but also singing for her. Watch as they shake hands with the English monarch, plus view a clip of their “Little Things” performance! After that, make sure to send your own congratulations to 1D in the comments or on our One Direction message board!

Watch Liam Payne Perform His “Signature Move!”

    Um… mass media wasn’t around to expose the beatles or queen half as much as it has exposed one direction and although i am a fan of all three, one direction will never break the ground the beatles broke and they have never pretended to… that harsh tone ^^^ was a bit unnecessary and seeing as paul has met the boys, it’s no really no threat to him. the members of the beatles and queen know what history they made and do not need self-assurance through websites. it was always about the music for them.

    I can’t believe that it’s this bunch of idiots who get such an accolade. Are Americans stupid enough that they didn’t buy enough albums to, say, get the Beatles to the top spot for their first two albums? Or Queen?
