One Direction scores its first No. 1 on a Billboard radio airplay chart, as “Story of My Life” rises 2-1 on Adult Pop Songs.
The boy band had reached No. 5 on the survey (and No. 3 on Pop Songs) with “What Makes You Beautiful” in 2012, but hadn’t returned to the top 10 of each tally until its current hit.
Sue O’Neil, program director of Pop Songs reporter WKSE and Adult Pop Songs panelist WTSS Buffalo, N.Y., is among those crediting the organic lean of “Story” for its radio success. “It’s a new, more contemporary sound for One Direction,” she says. “You find yourself singing and liking the song whether or not you normally like the boy-band sound, or even One Direction. It’s a great song.”
"Story" concurrently enters the Adult Contemporary top 10 (11-10). It remains in the Pop Songs top 10 after reaching No. 4.
In which Louis helps Zayn fix various articles of clothing.
I met Zayn (Niall, Liam and Louis) after the 1D concert in Hamburg at the 12th May. It was only me and my friends and everyone was calm when they arrived and stopped a few meters in front of us. When the doors opened we all stepped back even more. The boys went outside and Zayn went past my friends. I wanted to sign him my album so I asked for it. He stopped and walked towards me to sign my album. I was not sure whether to ask for a photo or not. But I did and asked friendly cause I didn’t want to bother him as I know he hardly takes photos. He was like sure, you can have a photo. And as this wouldn’t have been already amazing he gave me his snapback and signed it without me asking for it. I stood next to him and thought: well he’s not going to give it to me now,or is he?! OMG he’s signing it omg I think he really does.
Then he gave me the snapback and left.
I didn’t even expect to get an autograph but Zayn exceeded all my expections by giving me a signed snapback.
I never thought this could happen to me. You always think it only happens to other people but this is the proof that you should never stop believing in anything.
Thank you Zayn <3
100 % just drew Zayn in psychedelic colours instead of working on a massive assignment that is due tomorrow… Please take my art supplies away from me.
