1D make US Billboard chart history

One Direction have become the first group to see all four of their first albums reach number one in the US

One Direction have become the only group to have their first four albums chart at number one in the US, toppling Taylor Swift from the top spot in the process.

In the Billboard 200's 58-year history, they are the first band to have achieved the feat and are now celebrating the success of their appropriately titled record, Four.

But despite ousting Taylor Swift, Harry Styles' ex, from the number one spot, their new record sold far fewer copies at 387,000 in its first week of release, compared to Taylor's first week with 1989 which shifted 1,287,000 copies, according to Billboard.

Other artists to have seen a record number of their albums chart at the top are all soloists - Britney Spears' first four reached number one, as did DMX and Beyonce's first five.

Last year, Midnight Memories made the One Direction lads the first group to have seen their first three albums at the top of the US chart.

The group also had a successful week in Australia, where they picked up the award for Best International Artist and performed their track Steal My Girl.

While receiving the award, Zayn Malik thanked their Australian fans for their support over the last four albums.
