Grab the tissues! One Direction brought ALL the feels in their ‘History’ video, which looks back at their incredible time as a band — including some very special moments with Zayn Malik. Click inside to WATCH!
One Direction bids farewell to their fans as they go on a year-long hiatus in the highly nostalgic music video for “History.”
It all started on The X Factor stage, and that’s where “History” begins with black-and-white footage of the five British boys that changed the music scene forever. And yes, it includes Zayn Malik, despite the fact that he left the band for good in March 2015.
As the video continues we find the four remaining members of One Direction — Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson — singing their latest single, “History,” in current time. However, flashes of their past, and how they became the biggest boy band in the world, continuously cross the screen.
It’s worth noting that Zayn is included in almost every single shot, including some very sweet moments where he one-on-one hugs different members of the band. Is this there way of saying goodbye to Zayn for good, or is it their way of reminding him that what they had together can never be replicated? Don’t forget that Liam once explained that “History” was about finding closure after Zayn left. Hmm!
You’ll also notice that as the video continues, it shows less and less clips that include Zayn. In fact, the final “throwback” shows just the four remaining members embracing each other on stage after a performance. That’s very telling!
You have to watch the video for yourself to see how emotional it is. Yes, you really will need those tissues!
