One Direction Set To Make US Chart History!
1D's debut LP is heading for the top spot, beating The Beatles feat...
Industry experts have predicted that The X Factor group will sell somewhere between 160,000 - 180,000 copies of the record next week - meaning they should top the chart.
If the estimated figures prove correct, One Direction will be the first British band to hit No.1 with their debut LP, with people comparing them to the Fab Four from Liverpool.
Speaking of The Beatles comparisons, Harry Styles told The Mirror: "That seems ridiculous to us, because they were such icons.
“But we watched a film of their first US trip and there were similarities. We’re as close as them despite not being together long.”
1D previously signed an exclusive deal with American store Walmart to sell copies of Up All Night, with a number of TV networks following the lads around as they sign albums.
