One Direction Scores Second Platinum Single

Kirkland/PictureGroupOne Direction now has two of "that one thing" -- "that one thing" being a platinum single.  The group's song "One Thing" topped the one-million-dowload mark this week, according to Yahoo! Chart Watch.  It's 1D's second platinum single in a row following "What Makes You Beautiful," which has racked up 3.5 million downloads.

Yahoo! points out that One Direction is now the first boy band to have back-to-back platinum singles since The Jonas Brothers did it in 2008 with "When You Look Me in the Eyes" and "Burnin' Up."

In addition to music, One Direction's also having a lot of success in the visuals department.  Their DVD Up All Night: The Live Tour is #1 on the Billboard Top Music Video chart for the 16th week in a row. It's sold just under 300,000 copies so far.

1D's new album Take Me Home is due in November.  The first single, "Live While We're Young," hits digital providers October 1.
