One Direction beat the Beatles' top 10 debuts record

One Direction are now officially bigger than the Beatles, according to the latest chart data.

The boy band's song Perfect has entered the new Billboard Hot 100 at 10, marking the group's fifth top 10 new entry, the most among all groups.


The latest debut breaks a tie with the Beatles, who crashed into the top 10 four times.


However, Harry Styles still has some way to go to match his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift's top 10 debuts - she has tallied 12 to lead all artists.
