Zayn Malik has spoken out! One Direction released their very first song without him on July 31, and fans have been dying to know — what does he think?! See his message here!
Zayn Malik, 22, may have left One Direction, but he is still keeping up with their music! The former 1D star has listened to their amazing new single, “Drag Me Down,” and couldn’t help but share his thoughts on Twitter about the band’s first song without him. Here’s what he said!
“Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love. :) x,” Zayn tweeted on Aug. 1. This is music to our ears! We’re so happy that Zayn is continuing to support his former bandmates, Harry Styles, 21, Louis Tomlinson, 23, Niall Horan, 21, and Liam Payne, 21. Actually, HollywoodLife.com told you first that Zayn was a huge fan of their new song!
We admit, it was a little weird to hear 1D’s new song without the angelic voice of Zayn. But hey, Zayn showing his public support for it makes it feel like he’s still a part of the group! Zayn has officially left his boy band days behind, recently signing to RCA to make “real music,” but it’s great that he’s still able to maintain a good relationship with his former bandmates.
Now that Harry, Liam, Louis and Niall have the Zayn stamp of approval on their new song, they should go celebrate — because “Drag Me Down” is the fastest song ever to reach number one on iTunes! What’s amazing, too, is that they didn’t tease or promote the song. Instead, the band’s official Twitter page announced early on July 31 that the new song had dropped early. Clearly, it’s a huge hit, and it makes us feel better now that we know Zayn is in love with it just as much as we are!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad Zayn is supporting 1D or should he have kept quiet? Let us know!
