Each generation has its popular boy band. In the 1990s teen girls all over the world were crazy from “Backstreet Boys”, in the early 2000s they lost their heads from “’N Sync”. The cult boy band of the 2010s is obviously “One Direction”.
The British band was formed in 2010 by five The X Factor alums, which joined their talents to create something really interesting. Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis worked hard from morning till night, writing new songs and recording them. They released five albums within short years, and it was quite hectic. But that didn’t stop the boys, who became internationally famous stars overnight.
Their first album “Up All Night” was released in 2012 and immediately occupied the first place in the American music chart “Billboard 200”. That result was unbelievable for the English-based band in the USA, and it was described in Guinness World Records. That very year the boys presented the second set of songs “Take Me Home” and then went on their first international tour, which brought the gifted musicians millions of dollars.
“One Direction” collected lots of awards during 5 years of their activity. In 2015 they had to deal with the first loss – Zayn Malik left the band. Four other participants worked together during a year and recorded an album “Made in the A.M.”, the one and only without Zayn’s voice. The set of songs debuted the second at Billboard 100 (the previous four albums were the first). In 2016 the band members decided to take 18 months break in “One Direction” activity. Now the boys are focused on their solo careers.
