Only yesterday our Gazza tweeted his congratulations to The Wanted on their success in the US charts, and today it’s the turn of One Direction to get a big-up from the X Factor judge.
“Another big congrats to @onedirection on their US success.America loving our boy bands.Maybe I’ll get me cycling shorts back on!! #ornot”
As well as the previous news that “Glad You Came” reached number 1 on the US iTunes charts, the boys have now gone one better and entered the Billboard Hot 100 Top 3, and in doing so have become the highest charting UK boyband, EVER!
Well done TW! The record that One Direction broke 2 weeks ago didn’t last long!
Those older Directioners out there might remember Take That got to number 7 in the US charts with their hit “Back For Good” – “WANT YOU BACK… WANT YOU BACK… YOU KNOW I WANT YOU BACK FOR GOOOD!” – sorry…
The current success of both 1D and The Wanted is terrific news for the UK music scene, and especially for UK boybands.
All we need next is for JLS to have a top ten hit!
