Today on the 8th February 2015, Ellie achieved her Second UK Number 1 single with ‘Love Me Like You Do’, a track taken from the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Soundtrack! In one week the single has sold over 172,000 copies! We could not be prouder of this incredibly talented singer who has worked tirelessly and has achieved super-star status over the last three years in particular. This is yet another UK number one single to Ellie’s name following 'Burn’ in 2013. Here is to album number three and continued chart success! Well done Ellie, love from all your Goulddiggers across the globe!
One Direction make a glorious return to the Official Singles Chart today as Drag Me Down not only enters straight in at Number 1, but sets a new streaming record.
The group’s first single as a quartet, following the departure of Zayn Malik in March, debuts at the top of this week’s tally and earns the highest first-week streams for a single ever in the UK, racking up 2.03 million plays in its opening week across chart-reporting streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and more.
Drag Me Down is One Direction’s fourth Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart; following What Makes You Beautiful (2011), Little Things (2012) and One Way Or Another (2013).
I feel as though I need to warn people before they go crazy; only Sweeter Than Fiction, The Last Time and Shake It Off will eligible for a Grammy this year (unless another song is released in the next 2 days) and they should hopefully pick up all the Grammys they deserve.
2016 IS OUR YEAR WHERE TAYLOR WILL HAVE ALREADY COVERED THE AMERICAN PART OF THE TOUR AND POSSIBLY ANOTHER LEG, AND HER WHOLE ALBUM AND ALL HER NUMBER 1 SINGLES WILL BE UP FOR GRAMMYS AND EVERYONE WILL BOW DOWN TO SCOTTISH ROYALTY
A lot can change in five years, and life has certainly moved pretty fast for the five original members of One Direction since they scored their first ever hit in 2011.
Five may have become four, but Niall, Louis, Liam, Harry and former member Zayn can all celebrate today with the news they’ve scored their first ever million-selling single thanks to What Makes You Beautiful.
Two weeks ago saw the fifth anniversary of What Makes You Beautiful debuting at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart, and now the song becomes only the 167th single in UK chart history to pass the seven-figure milestone.
What Makes You Beautiful was the first of four chart-toppers for One Direction. Zayn left the band in 2015, but the remaining four carried on to score their final Number 1 album and single, before going on hiatus in early 2016.
Zayn scored a Number 1 with his first solo hit Pillowtalk and debut album Mind of Mine, while Niall became the first of the remaining four to release solo material, scoring a Top 10 with This Town this week.
One Direction’s huge achievement sees them join artists like Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Adele, Elton John, Queen and Abba in the exclusive million-sellers’ club.
