One Direction is one of the most successful boy bands since 2010 and has been making waves for its highly catch the music. One Direction is also commonly referred to as 1D.
Mostly we see, bands are the collaboration of one idea, and members are well put, who know each other well. However, their story is a bit different. All of the members are previous participants of the popular show ‘The X Factor’ and were disqualified on further levels. And, then went up to groups’ category and that too through a suggestion of one of the judges.
Once they cleared up all the rounds, another judge got an idea of creating their band, and that’s how we got hits one by one. They stood in the third position of the show, and since then, they are doing tours, signed up for albums by big names like Cowell and more.
After the ‘X-Factor’ happened, their every art in the preceding year has been massive, and the audience just got bigger, and the group got more influential. Of course, their contractors played a major role here, and the tour just stuck the right chord. Every marketing strategy picked upright, and we can now see this band as a giant.
Every year their foot just got more rooted, making it obvious to every admirer that they are here to rule and conquer. The first year was huge as they got to release their solo album as well, i.e., ‘Up All Night.’ And, this year, they were involved in controversy as well due to a name issue another band has claimed. The news got vanish as soon as it made headlines. Everybody knows who won. Meanwhile, artists focused on what they know better and continued doing more tours and entertaining their audience.
Another studio album in the second year and again the highest sales record goes to their band. This leads them to take another tour, and this was even more successful than the previous one. Taking notes of their fame and success, the band has managed these two years very well. While other bands in the history have the stories of spilled-up and then headlines, this one has it all, but keeps it on the low note. We may say, the industry has learned from past mistakes.
Awards & Achievement
They have been titled number one in many awards, and most of them are Teen choice. The rest are 6 Brit awards, 4 MTV video, 11 MTV Europe, and 7 American Music. With every year till 2017, getting ‘Video of the Year Award’ was the last one they achieved and are still getting high on charts.
Net Worth of One Direction
After years of being in the industry and releasing several hit songs, the group has today become popular across the globe. They came second in Rich musicians list under 30. And, now As of February 2024, the current estimate of their net worth is $250 million, and will probably only increase further in the coming years.
They started up with five members, and with a split of Zayn Malik, the band is making great success with their talent. Of course, talent is just not enough nowadays, and their success includes good choices, intelligent media interaction, and a determination that eventually sidelined the controversies regarding the split.
Furthermore, to add, the initial platform they got is hard to find, and on top of that, they have used it sensibly. What else could we expect from some fresh faces (now, they are not) and probably have learned everything about the survival of the fittest?
