One Direction has only been a band for two years total and in that short amount of time, they have accomplished something few musical acts ever achieve! In less than a year, they have sold 12 million singles, albums and DVDs — Congrats!

One Direction‘s worldwide sales have topped 8 million singles, 3 million albums and a million DVDs. An amazing feat for the young band!

The band was presented with a special disk by Syco and Sony Music UK on July 31. One Direction’s debut album Up All Night has reached the top of the charts in 16 different countries!

“We are obviously ecstatic and incredibly humbled by our award today. We have an incredible team of people around us who have helped us achieve this and above all we would like to thank our fans. We owe all our success to them,” member Liam Payne said.

We can’t wait to see One Direction perform live at MTV’s Video Music Awards on September 6th!

Is One Direction your favorite band, HollywoodLifers?
