One Direction Net Worth Is $30 Million
One Direction are a pop boy band, hailing from London, consisting of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The band came into existence during the seventh season of the British TV singing show, The X Factor, in 2010. During the show, when they failed as individuals to qualify to the boy’s category, they were put together as a group in the “bootcamp” round of the show. Working together as a group, they impressed the judges and made their way to being the second runner up of the show.
Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell were the judges of the show. Seeing some promise in the group, Simon Cowell signed them up with his record label Syco Records. The name One Direction was decided for the band as soon as Harry Styles came up with it. The album with which One Direction made their debut is Up All Night (2011), which generated the hit singles What Makes You Beautiful and Up All Night. The album broke several records around the world and made its way up to the major charts. In 2012, their next album, Take Me Home was released. The album garnered tracks like Live While We’re Young and Little Things. The album received mixed responses from critics but was an overall success. The album topped the Billboard 200 and also topped all other major charts.
The album ranked at number one position in UK and One Direction became the youngest act in history of UK to accomplish something like this. Afterwards, in 2013, the band was back with their new album Midnight Memories. With this album, the band tapped slightly into the rock genre with tracks like Story of My Life. The album debuted in both US and UK at number one position, making One Direction the first group in history to debut at number one position at the Billboard 200 with its first three albums. The net worth of these young wonders together, is $30 million.
