One Direction continue their winning streak with their new LP Midnight Memories as the record lands at #1 on the Billboard 200 today, knocking previous chart-topper Eminem to the #2 slot with his album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2Billboard reports that this makes One Direction the first in history to debut at #1 with their first three albums (chart trivia!); their latest offering moved an impressive 546,000 units, while 2012′s Take Me Home sold 540,000 and 2011′s Up All Night sold 176,000.
