Breaking news: One Direction still selling records by the truckload. Hurrah!

We always knew that One Direction had a knack for shifting units but now its official: the boys have been named IFPI Global Recordings Artists of 2013!

The independent chart takes into account sales across various formats including downloads, physical sales, singles, streaming and music videos, proving once again that that the 1D juggernaut wont be stopping anytime soon. Not that we’re complaining of course.

Coming close behind the boys on the chart are the likes of Rihanna, Eminem and Katy Perry to name but a few. We think the lads are in pretty good company there. What do you think? Are you pleased for 1D?
