To say that One Direction has been successful would be a bit of an understatement. The band has fans all over the world, has played to sold out audiences and even has its own book. It’s clear that they’re extremely famous and fans are ready to wait in line to buy their platinum album, but how many things have they been able to sell?
Turns out, in less than a year, One Direction has reached 12 million sales. Breaking it down, it comes down to eight million singles, three million albums and one million DVDs. Those figures don’t even include things like concert tickets, t-shirts and practically anything with their faces on it. Last night, they received a special disc from Syco Entertainment to celebrate the sales. Way to go, boys!
The band is currently working on their second album. Contrary to the first one, they will be writing the songs themselves. Actually, we hear that Niall will be providing quite a bit of the lyrics! You can catch them next performing at the MTV VMAs before they go off on their world tour in 2013. They’ve been nominated for Best Pop Act and Best Pop Video, so tune in on September 6th to see if they’ll win!
