One Direction Join The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, and U2 on Billboard Record
July 1, 2017 - one direction
One Direction‘s interregnum competence uncover no pointer of finale any time soon, though a boys before famous as 1D are still violation barriers together.
On Thursday, Billboard reported that a organisation has strictly assimilated artists like The Beatles, U2, and Fleetwood Mac in terms of solo success: like a low-pitched legends, 4 former members have all had songs that burst a Top 40 territory of a Hot 100 charts.
However, this miracle competence seem treacherous depending on how we conclude One Direction’s stream lineup. After all, a organisation started out with five members, usually to finish adult with four. What’s more, Billboard counted Zayn Malik as one of a 4 members whose songs contributed to a coup, though he wasn’t a partial of that final-four lineup. (“Pillowtalk,” a initial singular off his manuscript Mind of Mine, debuted during No.1.) Some Directioners would disagree that Zayn will always be a member of One Direction.
The usually member to not have achieved a miracle so distant is Louis Tomlinson, whose duet with Steve Aoki reached no. 52 on a charts. And to be clear, that is still a intrepid effort.
Either way, a boys are in some flattering good company. Other groups, like The Eagles and Wu-Tang Clan have also found success on a Hot 100 draft as solo acts. If anything, it’s a covenant to fandom, and a fact that Directioners kept a movement of 1D going even after a dissection and a hiatus. Not all child bands can contend a same.
