Streaming results of Made in the A.M. is one of the reasons explaining why we shouldn’t jump to conclusions too fast. The album is the lowest seller in pure album sales, as well as the weakest in download singles.

Both tracks total 1 billion YouTube views also. All in all, the album is up to 1,6 million equivalent album sales from this format.

Can you updated the one direction album tracklist


One direction music has really aged well. Selling over 2 million a year and increasing by 10 million is good feat. Averaging 11 million per era. Damn! They will be over 70 million by end of decade. Amazing stuff.


So now three of them have at least one solo album that has debut top five in the US. Looks promising for them all.


Hi. Please update Harry Styles’ solo CSPC. Thanks
