There's not much talk of a reunion but we're very happy that they're all still making music!

It's already been two years since Zayn left the band and about a year and a half since the announcement that they were going on hiatus. While we haven't lost all hope for a grand reunion, we're quite happy that the boys have been working on their own solo projects. 

With Zayn leaving the band, it wasn't a complete surprise when he came out with his first album not long after his departure. With two records already under his name and collaborations popping up, we're looking forward to more music from this boy from Bradford.

Niall Horan was the first of the four boys left in One Direction to release his solo track. He has since released two songs since the hiatus and we can't wait for him to release a full album. Are you a fan of "This Town" and "Slow Hands," too? 

In an emotional performance following his mother's death late last year, Louis Tomlinson released his first solo and collaboration with DJ Steve Aoki on the show that launched his singing career. We can still remember his proud face fighting back tears at the end of performing "Hold On."


And who remembers the moment Harry Styles #blessed us with his album just a few weeks ago? TBH, we haven't stopped playing everything on repeat. What about you? And his weeklong stint on The Late Late Show with James Corden is giving us LYF. Can he just perform the entire tracklisting live? Because OMG, we don't even need a reason.

Last but definitely not the least, Liam Payne—OG Daddy Direction and new daddy to baby Bear—has finally released his solo track and we are living for it. Already waiting for that music video because if his teasers on social media are any indication, we're in for a hot, hot ride.

Hit the play button and beam with pride because our boys are all grown up and even if we don't see a 1D reunion in the next couple of years, I think we'll be okay. Or so we hope. Happy listening!
