For most teenagers, One Direction were the ultimate heartthrob boy band. And, it seems after their hiatus, they may be making a comeback, after tweeting for the first time in 2 years.
Safe to say, fans are having an absolute meltdown…
The popular British boyband have been on a break for some time now, but it seems that might not be the case from tomorrow.
And, after the band broke their 2-year silence, fans have been going crazy online.
Of course, you remember the hysteria surrounding the band.
This band truly had it all.
They were formed on The X Factor.
The 5 members, first found the limelight on the UK television talent show, The X Factor.
Louis Tomlinson, along with 4 other contestants first auditioned as solo artists.
They were put together as a band by the show’s producers. From left to right, we have Harry, Louis, Liam, Zayn, and Niall, pictured at their album signing in 2012.
Up All Night, Take Me Home, Midnight Memories, and Four. They each became a number one selling collection.
In the United States alone, the band managed to sell 7.6 million albums and in 2015, the net worth of the band rose to $215 million.
But when Malik left the band, the other 4 guys decided to carry on for a year longer releasing Made In The A.M which was their final album.
December 13th 2016 was the final time they performed together as a band, ending their legacy on the stage in which they originally started.
Their solo careers.
And started producing music that they felt would best represent them as an individual artist and boy did we get a range of music. From R ‘n’ B to soft rock, we were given the whole lot.
Niall Horan was the first (post Malik’s departure) to release his album. But as the other members spent time honing their craft, they quickly caught up to him. According to album sales and overall net worth, Harry Styles has come out on top.
Louis Tomlinson recently did an emotional interview with The Telegraph in which he exposed some of the inner workings of the band, his solo career including his debut album Walls, and his personal life.
He opened about his grief and his mom’s battle with leukemia. She died in 2016.
“One thing I’ve learnt since losing her is that any decision, even if I knew the answer, I’d call her. “I didn’t realize how reliant I’d become on her. That was the hardest thing for me, understanding that living life after meant making decisions on my own.”
In March 2019, Tomlinson lost his younger half-sister Félicité, who died after an accidental drug overdose. She was eighteen-years-old.
“But I think dealing with the family, how I can be there for them, that was a lot easier the second time because the first time I was grieving and didn’t know what to say.”
“I know the things I’ve been upset about in my life are s***, but I can’t change them, so you have to make the best of what you’ve got.”
He said this: I was f****** fuming at first. We were working really hard – people have said overworked, but we weren’t overworked, that’s just what happens when you’re a band that size, though I understand. I thought I’d mentally prepared myself for a break, but it hit me hard…”
“About a week after, I sat there thinking, ‘strike while the iron’s hot,’ but I wasn’t ready. I was bitter and angry, I didn’t know why we couldn’t just carry on. But now, even though I don’t fully understand everyone’s individual reasons, I respect them.”
“It if was up to me, yeah. I’d maybe have said, ‘Let’s have a year off.’ But yeah, probably. I’m sure there’s a better analogy out there but it’s a bit like shutting down Coca-Cola. You don’t say, ‘Right, let’s hang the boots up on that,’ because it’s a massive thing.”
And many have been rallying for some kind of reunion.
Why? Well, the band have tweeted for the first time in 2 years…
And of course, naturally, fans are trying to figure out the cryptic tweet ahead of the date.
The tweet has been liked almost 1 million times, at the time of writing.
Are One Direction finally getting back together?
The Tweet doesn’t tell us an awful lot, that’s for sure.
What do you think it means?
Either way, something looks to be in the works…
