Wow. It seems the world’s most powerful boy band has no intention of slowing down just yet. One Direction released their fourth studio album ‘Four’ on Monday and after shooting up to the top spot on the local iTunes charts and flying off the shelves at music stores around the country, the boy band has officially sold over 20 000 units in South Africa reaching GOLD status.
I have heard the album and will be posting a review in the next few days but it seems One Direction are doing something right with regards to their careers. From selling hundreds of thousands of copies this week to selling out stadiums around the world, One Direction are still at the top of their game four years into their career.
With a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold, in just four short years One Direction have gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. Last year they became the first band in history to debut at the top of the US Billboard chart with their first three albums and were named the IFPI’s Global Recording Artist of 2013 after becoming the biggest selling and most streamed act in the world.
Here is the official tracklisting:
1. Steal My Girl
2. Ready To Run
3. Where Do Broken Hearts Go
5. Girl Almighty
6. Fool’s Gold
7. Night Changes
8. No Control
11. Stockholm Syndrome
