Is it just us or are you having a hard time getting ‘Drag Me Down’ out of your head too!? One Direction’s new single is so fire, but we can’t help but wonder what it’s about — is it about Zayn Mailk? Louis Tomlinson just answered our question in a new interview!
One Direction‘s new single “Drag Me Down” is making waves in more ways than one! Yes, it’s an amazing song, but many fans are speculating that it’s about Zayn Malik‘s departure from the band. Could it be possible? Louis Tomlinson, 23, thought it was time to clear up the rumors and tell us the truth — find out exactly what he said during an interview on Darryl Morris’ Hits show on August 3.
“Are you trying to look for some kind of controversial answer here? You’re not getting it. The song is not about that, obviously,” Louis said about 1D’s new single. Well, there you have it, guys — It’s not about Zayn!
Darryl also asked about the dynamic of the group, now that they are a foursome. “Don’t get me wrong it was a different dynamic at first and I think that’s just another challenge and another adjustment that we’ve had to make, I think we’ve done that and I think we’ve proved that with this single. We always made a habit of sharing out the vocals anyway so we just said to ourselves we’ve got to make this work and I think we did,” Louis said.
Yesterday, Liam also talked about Zayn but he said something that really shocked us! “One Direction was never Zayn’s sort of music so he always wanted to find something else. If your heart’s not into something you can’t just carry on doing it because of fame and stuff. You have to go and do what you want to do,” he told BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw on August 3. Ugh, it’s been months since Zayn quit but it still stings to hear those things!
