1D fans, it’s time to face the music.
The One Direction fellas are no longer singing to the same tune, or even dancing to the same beat. In fact, almost all of them now appear to be speedily heading in very different musical directions.
Following the strategic exit of ZAYN, who turned solo superstar last year, we now have proof that One Direction member Niall Horan is branching out on his lonesome in the pursuit of solitary success.
He’s just released his debut solo single called This Town (below), along with the following statement:
“I’m excited to announce I have signed a record deal with Capitol Records USA and released my first solo song. Thank you to all the One Direction fans for your love and support as always. I’m looking forward to the next part of this journey together.”
Hammering one more nail into the One Direction coffin are comments made by Harry Styles in a recent interview with UK magazine Another Man. He actually talks about 1D in the past tense, even before the band has officially announced its split:
“I would never say we’ll never do anything again, but it’s good for us to be exploring different things… Maybe at some point everyone will want to do something again, but it’s better if it happens naturally,” Styles says.
“Like, ‘Hey, we all really want to do something again… If that were to happen it would be amazing. I would never rule that out.”
These statements followed hints a few months ago that Styles would be pursuing his own solo career. So, all things considered, it seems One Direction are finally over and out. Soz.
