One Direction have become the first ever British band to come straight in at number one on the US album charts with their debut record Up All Night. One Direction singer Liam Payne has admitted that he and the rest of the One Direction boys are still struggling to believe what is happening.
Payne explained, "It still seems strange to say that, everything's happened this quickly. We didn't expect to be over here releasing an album. I don't think it's quite hit home yet. It's just really surreal to think you were one of those five lucky people," he said. "Anyone could have been chosen that day."
He added, "We're all still naive to the music industry. People tell you all these stats and tell you that you're great, but you kind of just smile, because you don't really understand it that much, so you just go with it, I suppose."
One Direction’s debut album sold over 176,000 copies in its first week of sales, giving it the number one spot on the US Billboard 200. One Direction have been lined up to appear on Saturday Night Live on April 7.
