A band every teenage girl knew about was One Direction. The band was very popular after forming in 2010. The members of the band, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan, originally auditioned for the X-Factor and later Simon Cowell formed the musical band. They became very well known and their music was something most people liked. Their most loved and heard songs being, “Story of My Life,” “What Makes You Beautiful,” and “Drag Me Down.”

Five years after they started Zayn Malik decided to leave the band. It was announced by the band on March 25, 2015. After Zayn left five months passed by and the band announced they were going to break up. On August 2015 they decided to pursue their solo careers. To the fans it came up as last minute and out of the blue, but the band had already spoken about it in 2014. Since then the five artists have been prospering to new heights and discovering what they can do. Zayn Malik has a new daughter which he shared with the fans through Instagram and said, “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful.” With welcoming a new baby girl, he also released a new song called “Better.” Harry Styles on the other hand is living the famous artist dream. Many of his songs like “Watermelon Sugar,” “Falling,” “Adore You,” and many more have been great hits and his fan base continues to increase. Niall Horan also continues his career as a musician with his most listened song in Spotify being “Slow Hands.” Louis like Zayn has a child. He has a son named Freddie Tomlinson. He also continues his career and his most listened song is “Back to You.” Liam Payne currently also has a son Bear Grey Payne and he also has continued his career with “Strip that Down” being the most listened on Spotify.

Although their break up was something that made the fandom get very sad some people are happy because of their separate glory. One of my sources said, “Although I really miss them as a band, I’m very proud of what Harry Styles has achieved and think it was best for him in reality.” Another source says, “I wish they were back together; they bring back so many good memories.” Since their departure, Harry Styles, Panic at the Disco, Twenty One Pilots and many more artists and bands have raised the bar and have gotten their fame.

As a result, the members have had a good life since their departure from One Direction band. They are all having a good life currently and some are caring for their children. Even if it was sad for the fans that they all broke up in a way it was better for them because they could focus on themselves individually and weren’t restricted like they were in the band. The good thing is that they are still friends to this day and still give the fans amazing music while having a good life.
