Harry Styles arriving to JFK Airport in NYC tonight
One Direction’s "Midnight Memories" debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart this week with 546,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The act makes history as the first group to debut at No. 1 with their first three albums.
"Midnight Memories" follows two No. 1s for the act in 2012: their debut album "Up All Night" and sophomore set "Take Me Home." Further, One Direction is — as we forecast last Thursday — the first group since the Monkees, in 1967, to reach No. 1 with their first three albums.
One Direction’s first-week sales have also steadily grown with each successive album. Their first set, “Up All Night,” bowed atop the list with 176,000, while “Take Me Home” launched with 540,000.
With “Midnight Memories’” start, One Direction also becomes only the third pop group to log multiple half-million sales weeks in the Nielsen SoundScan era. Since the company began tracking sales in 1991, only two other pop groups have notched more than one sales week of 500,000: ‘N Sync and Backstreet Boys. (SOURCE)
