It’s been an amazing week for boy bands, has it not? It’s almost as if we’ve time warped back to 1999. I’m talking, of course, about my two new current obsessions, The Wanted and One Direction. Both are boy bands with four Brits and one Irish dude, both have amazing songs currently on repeat, and, most importantly, both groups are experiencing insane recent success.
First up, The Wanted are celebrating their single, “Glad You Came” being featured on Glee.
This was a huge showcase for the band who are just now breaking into America. The song appearing on the show has catapulted the song into the Top 4 on iTunes in the US as well as a #1 song on the Canadian iTunes chart. The single is still climbing in the states on the Billboard charts (currently sitting at 23) but expect it to continue to grow.
One Direction, on the other hand, are celebrating their big Brit Awards win for Best British Single for their massive #1 hit, “What Makes You Beautiful”.
This award was voted on by the fans and it has been reported that the fivesome (Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan) got 89% of the votes! That is gigantic. But that’s not all, One Direction just landed stateside to kick off their US tour with Big Time Rush.
They’re both about to be so popular in the states I can’t stand it.
But which group is your absolute fave? Whose music do you like better? Which guys are hotter?
