Photo credit Chris Lopez. One Direction have notched up an incredible 12 million sales worldwide in less than a year including 8 million singles, 3 million albums and a million dvds. To celebrate this amazing success the band were presented with a special disc last night by Syco and Sony Music in the UK.

One Direction’s debut album Up All Night has sold over 3 million copies worldwide and has hit No.1 in 16 different countries, including the US where they became the first ever UK band to debut at No.1 on the US Billboard chart. The album is currently the top selling debut album of 2012 in the US.

In the US Up All Night has been certified platinum with over 1 million sales, whilst “What Makes You Beautiful” has sold over 3 million copies in the US and 5 million worldwide. Their live DVD is also 3 x platinum in the US. In the UK Up All Night is at double platinum status, whilst their DVD is the biggest selling music DVD of the year.

Liam from the band says: “We are obviously ecstatic and incredibly humbled by our award today. We have an incredible team of people around us who have helped us achieve this and above all we would like to thank our fans. We owe all our success to them.”

The band will perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6th, and have been nominated for two awards, Best Pop Act and Best Pop Video. They will play a special concert at Madison Square Garden in New York on December 3rd, before embarking on a sold-out worldwide tour in 2013. One Direction recently took home three awards at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards including Choice Music Breakout Group, Choice Music Star Group and Choice Summer Song for “What Makes You Beautiful”.

One Direction have just celebrated their two year anniversary, marking the time they came together at boot camp on the UK’s X Factor. The band are currently writing and recording their forthcoming second album.

    They won’t surpass BSB in sales because 2 many people illegally download music now. That rarely happened back in BSB, Nsync, Britney days. Guarantee 1D sales would b comparable if tht wasn’t the case.

    Highly doubt that would be the case. Even if people illegally download albums nowadays 100 million albums is a lot even for hugely sucessful artists such as Beyonce.

    They might reach Jonas sales one day but not BSB.

    uhhhhhhh im talking about over a period of time…not just after one album. It will take time for them to get to that level & they likely wont reach it bcuz boybands arent what they were in the 90s.

    Bieber’s getting worried. I guess he and the Mexican are no longer dating seriously so he needs a new girl to molest.

    Oh I thought their album sold 12 million worldwide but looked up and read it sold about 3 million so they sold 12 million total overall sales that combines albums sales and single sales?

    Are they really gonna release their next album this year….
    cause I think that would be bad for them cause they’re first came out this year in the US and I don’t think an artist should sell two albums in the same year… unless they’re releasing it in the UK this year and then in America in 2013?

    Omg they’ll be huge. Maybe not “Backstreet Boys” kind of huge but big indeed.

    Lol well the backstreet boys have sold 100 million plus albums worldwide, I don’t think any boyband right now will outsell them. Then there’s the Beatles that have sold 1 billion albums worlwide.

    I don’t know what’s happening in the picture but this brings up another issue in my head.If he’s a muslim , does he fast since it’s Ramadan now ? ( a month during which muslims must not eat,drink or do any other vulgar act or talk.When the sun goes down they can eat and drink untill nearly before the sun rises the next day)

    Lol it’s okay, you wrote it right.
    And yes, i’m agree. They’re talented but the album was pretty weak. Hopefully they’ll write the songs for the next one :)
