The Beatles who? One Direction’s just beaten their record with ‘Perfect’

Niall Horan barely has any room left on his shelf for all of One Direction’s awards, so here’s one that doesn’t come with a trophy—the band’s single ‘Perfect’ debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 7 this week, making it their fifth Top 10 debut on the Hot 100. That beats the Beatles’ four (but doesn’t quite reach Taylor Swift’s twelve).

According to Billboard, the Beatles’ four singles to debut in the Top 10 of the Hot 100 are ‘Hey Jude,’ ‘Get Back,’ ‘Let It Be,’ and ‘Free As A Bird.’ Along with ‘Perfect,’ One Direction’s five singles are ‘Live While We’re Young,’ ‘Best Song Ever,’ ‘Story Of My Life,’ and ‘Drag Me Down.’

Joining ‘Perfect’ on the Hot 100 chart, albeit a little further down, is their non-single ‘Home,’ which comes in at No. 97.
