Boy band One Direction makes US chart history with third No. 1

Success has been the story of their life. Since their beginnings in 2010, boy band sensation One Direction have seen their popularity sky rocket, and their third album made chart history on Wednesday as they debuted at number one. "Midnight Memories" sold 546,000 copies, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan. The band, comprised of singers Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, was formed on the U.K. reality singing television show "The X Factor" just three years ago. Since then they've gone on to conquer the United States with songs such as "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Best Song Ever." The band's music is targeted at a young audience, and its fans are mainly teenage girls, dubbed "Directioners." The group currently has more than 16 million Twitter followers and 22 million Facebook fans.
