They may have already told us the story of their lives, but One Direction continue to add to the story of their career, adding another notch to the group's already impressive catalog of achievements.
Ahead of the Sept. 11 launch of the Guinness World Records 2015 book, the UK mega-group have been confirmed as entrants in the definitive annual for a remarkable first in the music industry.
With an unprecedented hat-trick of No.1 debuts on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the boys of 1D enter into the record books as the First act to debut at No. 1 with their first three albums on the standard-bearing American chart.
Their album Midnight Memories debuted in pole position last year following the chart-topping successes of Up All Night and Take Me Home in 2012. Incredibly, One Direction is the only act in the history of the Billboard albums chart to debut at the top with their first three releases - something even artists like Elvis, The Beatles, or Michael Jackson could never say.
