One Direction Breaks Beatles Record With New Single 'Perfect'

(Radio.com) British boy band One Direction have broken a record set by the Beatles with their latest single "Perfect." Billboard reports that One Direction's new single debuted at the No. 10 spot on the Hot 100.

"Perfect" is the group's fifth song to debut in the top 10, which is one more than the Fab Four. Although this is the fifth top 10 debut for 1D, "Perfect" is the second one from their forthcoming album Made in the AM, due out on Nov. 13.

The album's lead single "Drag Me Down" hit the charts at No. 3 when it was sent to radio back in August. One Direction may have bested The Beatles, but they still have captured the overall record. Find out who holds that here.
