One Direction to top the US albums chart?

Max from The Wanted has famously declared that he won’t count One Direction as competition until they have a song as high as his band do in the US charts – but he’ll be eating his words when he finds out what’s happening right now.

With music chart gurus estimating it to sell between 160,000 and 180,000 copies in just its first week of release, 1D’s album Up All Night is set to debut at Number One on the official Billboard album chart – and if it makes it, it will be the first time EVER that a UK band has debuted in that position.

The Wanted have been working hard overseas and it’s definitely been paying off, but with One Direction about to make chart history, things are starting to heat up. Of course we’re proud of both acts and can’t believe they’re both out there flying the flag for British music – but which side are YOU on? Let us know in the comments below…
