English-Irish pop band One Direction are all set to split up next year in 2016. It has been reported that following the completion of their 5th album, the 4 piece boyband will go on a hiatus and in early 2016 they will embark solo careers for a year. Simon Cowell had admitted during one of his interviews that he is not sure if the band will reform after going on a long hiatus. On August 23rd it was announced about the biggest pop band in the world will be splitting up. Upon hearing the news, the fans of 1D were heartbroken, but understood where the boys were coming from, and are supporting them. Months back, the first member to leave the band was Zayn Malik who is now signed to a new record label called RCA Records.
The boys consisting of Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson first auditioned for the 7th series of The X Factor as solo candidates in 2010. They were then put together as a give-piece boy band at Wembley Arena during the bootcamp stage of the competion after their failed to progress to the “Boys” category at the judges houses. After getting together, Harry was the one who came up with a name for their band “One Direction”, later they finished in the third place, and since then have won a number of awards and have turned out to be one of the most popular bands in the world. They are not just popular, but also one of the richest bands. Niall have taken it to his Twitter to point out that the band are not splitting up , but they are just taking a break. Hmm, but we have heard that before right? Once a band decide to take a break, a year gets extended to few years. The boys have a bright future ahead of them. But hey who knows, they might keep their promise and return after a year?
Sounds like Zayn has a big competition to compete with. With all the boys going solo, I doubt Zayn will get the opportunity to beat the boys in the charts.
