One Direction Makes History with DVD Release, Ranking

by at . Comments

John Mayer may be hating on Taylor Swift, but the irritating singer has a reason to be happy today: his latest album, "Born and Raised," just finished its second week atop the Billboard 200.

But the biggest chart news in the music industry centers instead around One Direction, whose DVD release of "Up All Night: The Live Tour" moved 76,000 copies.

This marks the first time in history that a number-one DVD has outsold a number-one album.

After just a week of sales, "Up All Night: The Live Tour" is already the number-three video of 2012. It trails Adele's "Live At The Royal Albert Hall" (426,000) and Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom Of The Opera At The Royal Albert Hall" (77,000).

One Direction's "Up All Night" CD, meanwhile, has sold 739,000 copies, ranking it fourth for the year; while "What Makes You Beautiful" has sold 2,460,000 copies, placing it seventh.

In other words: it's good to be a young British boy band singer these days.
