On Thursday, One Direction fans got to relive their pop icons' best moments over a decade online. The British-Irish group posted a special 10th anniversary video on its social media and on a new website, thanking fans at the end of the video for their loyalty. The five-minute video shows original members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Liam Payne on tour, behind the scenes, and generally having lots of fun, taken from early video diaries to releasing their latest single "History".
A special "10 Years of One Direction" website was also launched. One Direction has sold over 200 million records worldwide, with over 21 billion streams across all streaming platforms. The band has won nearly 200 awards including seven Brit awards, four MTV Music awards, six Billboard Music awards, seven American Music awards and 28 Kids Choice awards. After the release of its fourth studio album "Four" in 2014, One Direction became the first band in US Billboard 200 history to have its first four albums debut at number 1.
