Where’s One Direction now?

Back at school, my best friend and I, we sat through every lecture discussing nothing other than these five boys. I clearly remember waiting eagerly for their second album, Take Me Home (2012) and getting through boring Economics lectures only by counting off days to the album release.

Then, I also remember being broken hearted when Zayn Malik left, and even more so when they all left each other. Now, technically One Direction is on a “break”, but seeing hows their solo tours are selling out, their songs are hitting off, and how they keep adding more and more shows – (the last One Direction solo show is on till September, 2018), there quite really is no chance of my favourite band coming back together. The only good thing that’s come out of this is the fact that we have tons of new music from all of them.

Here’s seeing how the One Direction boys have done for themselves 7 years after they were put together!

Harry Styles:

This dimple-faced, curly-haired boy has always been my favourite and it goes without saying that Harry Styles’ new music is my favourite new music! His self-titled album released back in May and has some of the most beautiful music ever. My personal favourites are Two Ghosts and From the Dinning Table.

Niall Horan:

Niall just released the music video for his new song “Too Much To Ask”, and I have to say, I’m in love! Niall’s released three songs, quite far apart from each other but all of them have been undoubtedly brilliant. Its about time people heard more of Niall’s raspy Irish voice. He also recently announced his album coming in October! (hyperventilating)

Louis Tomlinson:

Louis’ first single with Steve Aoki was titled “Just Hold On” and quite honestly, it instantly became my favourite song in December, 2016. His second single featured Bebe Rexha and was released a few months back. Its actually taken me a few listens to get used to Bebe Rexha’s voice (Louis’ is perfect!), but now I can truthfully say I listen to Back To You once every day!

Liam Payne:

From being my second favourite One Direction boy to my least favourite One Direction solo artist, I have to admit that I’ve not really taken to his new style of music. When Liam released Strip That Down amongst all that controversy about the One Direction lyric, (Go read!), it took me ALOT of time to actually start liking the song. I haven’t yet heard his second single, Get Low and quiet frankly, I don’t think I’m going to end up listening to much of Liam’s new music.

Zayn Malik:

Ever since Zayn left, I was always low key angry at him. How could someone leave such a perfect band that made perfect music? And then he started making comments and giving interviews in which he blatantly stated that he hated being with the band, that he was forced to make the music and that he didn’t really enjoy any part of it. Then, I hated Zayn Malik. How could you say all of that about something that gave you such a great start? Because of this, I never really took to Zayn’s solo career and thus listened to only a handful of songs.
However, his new song with Sia titled “Dusk till Dawn” is actually starting to become one of my favourites. I was quite hesitant in listening to this song, but turns out its actually quite great! And, it has Zayn singing high notes ❤

Living and breathing Harry Styles

The past two weeks of this month, other than all studying and cramming of A LOT of case laws, my two weeks have just been 24 hours everyday of Harry Styles.

I think everyone already knows this – but for someone who doesn’t, I have unreservedly been a huge fan of One Direction for years. And Harry Styles has been my sad, little weakness since I discovered the band in 2012. Harry Styles released his solo album on 12th May (GO LISTEN) and I fell in love all over again.

Starting this Monday (15th May), Harry Styles spent all week on The Late, Late Show with James Corden which meant that every new day it had a ton of new videos for me to drool over and cry about. There’s something unique about being a 20 year old adult and still obsessing over boy band material: You feel no shame whatsoever in making the said boy band material your phone’s wallpaper.

Since the last few days have just been all Harry Styles, I have also been just asking everyone I know to watch the sam videos that I have been watching on repeat all day (also, all night)

Here’s one of my absolute favourite videos of him, singing my favourite song from his album and wearing smashing clothes and making me really emotionally frustrated.

Harry Styles: Two Ghosts

If you haven’t yet listened to the album or haven’t been fully convinced to watch any of the above said beautiful videos, take a look at this;

'The Today Show' Citi Concert Series, New York, USA - 09 May 2017

I mean, do you know of other really, really cute singers today who can pull this off?
Do yourself a favour: Listen to Harry Styles, and then watch the videos and then watch as you transform into an emotional and sexual mess.

Missin’ Zayn Malik

It’s 25th of July, so it’s 5 months since Zayn Malik quit One Direction. When I think about it, I didn’t feel very upset for very long when he left. Maybe, just maybe because I didn’t like the bad as much as I did three years ago. But, I was heartbroken.

I haven’t seen them in concert, and probably never will, but Zayn Malik left, before I could even have a slight chance to see them. So, yes I was heartbroken. I have to admit I even cried for like five minutes.

When I was listening to one of their old songs and Zayn Malik was singing, I think I realized how bad I actually felt back then in March. My all time favourite band had lost one member and now I know I couldn’t deal with them losing another member or breaking up before I’m old enough to manage myself emotionally.
