One Direction seems to have been on top of the pop music world for quite awhile but despite all their awards, their high charting songs, record breaking sales, and several UK top 5 hits, the boys haven’t had a massive hit on top 40 pop radio in the United States since their debut, “What Makes You Beautiful” in 2012, that is until now, according to Billboard. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN U ONLY PROMOTE UR SINGLES ON TWITTER
This week “Story of My Life” becomes One Direction’s first song since WMYB to enter the top 10 on Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart. Previously, “What Makes You Beautiful” peaked at #3 in 2012 while their singles since have peaked between numbers 15 and 19 on the chart, which isn’t bad by any means and still pretty darn good compared to others. Those singles included hits like “One Thing,” “Live While We’re Young,” “Kiss You,” and “Best Song Ever,” all of which earned big sales and earned millions of viral hits online. “Story of My Life” comes in at #10 on that chart this week.
