Taylor Swift Finally Meets Her Match On The Charts: One Direction - MTV

In a ranking dominated by singer Taylor Swift for the fourth week in a row, boyband One Direction takes the second spot among the stars of social media for the week of November 17-23, which ended in the star-studded American Music Awards.. One Direction released latest album "Four" earlier this month and generated more buzz when they performed the album's second single, "Night Changes," on Sunday at the American Music Awards. The boys also won three AMAs, including artist of the year. The band's most notable social media victory of the week took place on Twitter, where they got 314,467 retweets. They also pulled in more than 74.5 million YouTube views, having released the video for "Night Changes" on Friday.

One Direction, Taylor Swift shine at American Music Awards - Yahoo News

Taylor Swift received a new award for excellence named in honor of the American Music Awards' late founder Dick Clark, a pioneer of music television performances with his "American Bandstand" show. Accepting the award from Motown legend Diana Ross, Swift appeared to dish out a new round of criticism, albeit obliquely, against the streaming service Spotify from which she has pulled her music.

Swift's latest album, "1989", enjoyed the highest sales of any US album in its first week in 12 years. It far outpaced industry expectations by selling two million copies in the United States in its first three weeks.

But the debut week for One Direction was far more modest than that for "1989" which sold nearly 1.3 million albums in the week after its October 27 release. Swift's album smashed expectations with its sales, which were higher than any other album in a single week since Eminem's "The Eminem Show" in 2002, when the music industry's overall sales were far higher. Swift created a stir by removing her work from the streaming service Spotify, accusing the company of insufficient compensation, but One Direction's music remains available on the site.

"It means so much to me that it is for best hip-hop because that's what inspired me to move to America and pursue my dreams, and it's what helped me when I was a teenager to escape and to get through my life and to better times," the 24-year-old Australian rapper said, as her mentor T.I. stood beside her. "And it means so much that I can stand here against Eminem and Drake and come out with this." Ariana Grande also worked double duty Sunday: She took the stage to sing lounge-y, piano-versions of her upbeat hits "Problem" and "Break Free," following that with a duet of her latest hit, "Love Me Harder," with the Weeknd. Grande's older brother jumped up in joy, MAGIC! leader Nasir Atweh sang along and Heidi Klum bopped her head. Grande returned again to sing "Bang Bang" with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J, who kicked off the song in the crowd.
