One Direction’s album goes Number One in Italy & Sweden!

One Direction’s list of extraordinary achievements currently stands at 1.6 million record sales, 100 million views on YouTube, 2 Number 1 selling books, 2 major hit singles and a platinum selling debut album in the UK. And they can now also add a Number 1 album in Italy AND Sweden.

Yep, with ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ sitting pretty in the US iTunes Top 10, it’s becoming obvious very quickly that there are new additions to the 1D fan base popping up all over the world – including Italy and Sweden where debut album Up All Night has shot straight into the Number 1 spot. Nice work boys, just promise you won’t forget about all of us back here in the UK?

But there’s no chance they’ll be slowing down yet. Niall, Liam and the rest of the boys have their fingers crossed that ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ will pick up a BRIT award for Best British Single – the poll is now closed, so we hope you’ve been voting away like crazy over the past few weeks. Make sure you tune in to the live show on February 21st for the results!
