They might be on hiatus blah blah yada yada, but the One Direction boys are still rackin' up the award nominations and single sales like nobody's business in 2016. After 'History' officially went platinum in the UK last week, 'Little Things' is the latest to *finally* manage the milestone. HOORAH.
Yup - big congrats to Harry, Liam, Niall, Louis and Zayn (HE WAS PART OF IT TOO) as the Take Me Home ballad's gone and passed an impressive 600,000 sales round our neck of the woods according to the BPI (British Phonographic Industry, ooh la la.)
This makes 'Little Things' the lads' fifth single to go platinum in the company of 'History,' 'What Makes You Beautiful' (duh), 'Story of My Life' and 'Steal My Girl.' Not bad going considering we *still* have disputes with our dad over their talents, eh?
So let's take 3 minutes and 37 seconds out of our lives to appreciate the song that coined the word 'chonce,' still has us bawling like a baby and gave us the boys' best lyric video to date.
STILL. SO. GOOD.
