Can you guys believe it’s been FIVE years since One Direction released the video for ‘What Makes You Beautiful’!? In honor of this special anniversary, take our quiz to find out how well you remember the epic vid!
They’ve certainly come a long way! “What Makes You Beautiful” was the first video released by One Direction on this date in 2011, and we’re having major nostalgia watching it back five years later. Harry Style, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik all look SO different, and things really have changed since those days of them frolicking on the beach.
For starters, Zayn’s obviously not even in the band anymore. He left in March 2015, and just months later, he announced that he was embarking on a solo career. Exactly one year to the day of his departure, he released his debut album Mind Of Mine, and it ended up being a successful move!
Meanwhile, the other four guys kept things going as a group, and dropped their fifth album, Made In The A.M., in Nov. 2015. After promoting it for a few weeks, though, the guys officially went on hiatus by the beginning of 2016, and have been doing their own things ever since.
Although they’ve promised they’ll come back together as a band one day, it’s not looking like it’ll be any time soon. Harry is set to make his acting debut in the movie Dunkirk, and Liam just recently signed a record deal of his very own. Meanwhile, Louis is a brand new dad to an adorable son, Freddie, and there’s been talks of Niall getting his own contract in the near future, too.
Looks like we’ll have to reminisce on this work of art for now — take the quiz above to see how well you remember the video!
