One Direction's #FOURTAKEOVER campaign took the world of social media by storm yesterday. The boys promised to release one track from the new album if they reached a certain number of likes & retweets. And boy did the Directioners make sure it happened.

The #FOURTAKEOVER required fans of the group to RT a tweet from the band 40K times, share a Facebook post 40K times, reblog a Tumblr post 4K times and get 4k comments on an Instagram post. If they achieved this, they would be treated to an early release of a track from 'Four'. 

Of course all the targets were reached & 'Ready To Run' was released! Looks like the boys will be looking to go straight to the top of the Vodafone Big Top 40 this Sunday!
