USA fans, get ready, because One Direction are coming your way.
The boys debut single “What Makes You Beautiful” gets released to US contemporary hit radio stations on February 14th, with a full release shortly after.
The single has been certified platinum in New Zealand, Sweden and even double platinum in Australia, and broke a Sony Music Entertainment pre-order record selling 153,965 copies in the UK during its first week.
Big things are predicted for 1D in the USA, with many thinking they’ll be one of the first UK boybands in recent times to finally crack the big market.
With cute looks, great voices and charming personalities, One Direction are fast becoming the music sensation of the tennies (think 90’s, 00’s etc).
“Up All Night”, the debut album, will be released by Columbia Records in the USA on March 20th, and the “Better With U Tour” supporting Big Time Rush happens in February and March.
Some of the songwriters and producers who helped out on the album include Steve Mac, Rami Yacoub, RedOne, Ed Sheeran, Matt Squire and Kelly Clarkson, and it was the fastest-selling debut album on the UK Albums Chart during 2011.
With a HUGE and massively loyal fanbase already behind them, the US won’t know what has hit them next month.
America, be prepared for One Direction mania!
