The 5-year-old boy band One Direction released a new single overnight, and it quickly shot up the iTunes charts — at $1.29 a pop.
“Immediately, Directioners let go of any semblance of chill they’d ever had,” People magazine said, “though the overjoyed reactions truly reached their peak on Friday morning, when those who’d slept through the news woke up to find their Twitter feeds amok with feelings, GIFs and all caps.”
Sadly for SoCal Directioners, the band lists no L.A. stop on its U.S. tour. You’ll have to travel to somewhere like Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee or Baltimore.
