The Wanted's 'Glad You Came' Tops US iTunes Pop Chart

28 February 2012, 07:14

The 'Warzone' singer's first US release has also risen to number two on the overall iTunes chart.

The Wanted were celebrating last night after their debut US single rose to number one on the US iTunes pop chart.

The 'Lightning' singers launched 'Glad You Came' as their first stateside single earlier this month, and the track has been steadily climbing the charts since its release.

'Glad You Came' hit the top spot on the iTunes pop chart yesterday (27th February) and is at number two on the overall US iTunes chart.

"Know its late but we just got word we're #2 on iTunes in America!" The Wanted tweeted last night. "Today's been amazing! Spread the word! #GLADYOUCAME.

"Its so hard to go to bed when I'm this excited," band member Nathan Sykes added. "Can't express how insanely happy this makes us. Cant wait to tell the rest of my mates – ns."

The Wanted are the first UK boy band to achieve such success in the US since Take That reached number seven with 'Back For Good' back in 1995. 

It was announced yesterday that 'Glad You Came' has achieved Gold status in America after selling over 500,000 copies since its release.

The Wanted are currently on their 'The Code' tour across the UK and are due to perform at Aberdeen's AECC tonight (28th February).
