What Is One Direction Without Zayn?


What Is One Direction Without Zayn?

Who thought Harry Styles would go first? It doesn’t make sense that Zayn left One Direction so soon. It’s been a minute now and there are talks that he may come back still.

I came across a story about Paul McCartney weighing in on the topic. Speaking of weight, I gotta get this off my chest. O.K., One Direction will never be in the same ballpark as the Beatles. Who told you that lie?

I believe One Direction is an amazing band no doubt. Their music appeals to the youth. Plus, the band’s social media game has no rivals.

Nowadays, you’re measured by the power of your social network. With 28 million Twitter followers aka Directioners, One Direction has a powerful fan-base comprising of fortresses and arsenals around the world. Why on Earth would Zayn Malik leave it?

All I’m saying is what ever happened to loyalty, pride, and stick-to-it-ed-ness? What is One Direction without Zayn? The answer is PILLOWTALK. Yes, we got a hit song and top music video out his departure but at what price? 

Maybe, this is the real question-> does One Direction need Zayn and vice versa? It boils down to what is best for both parties. Right now Zayn is in a different lane. In America, it is the left lane because he’s going fast. In Great Britain, it’s the right lane.

Zayn should keep doing whatever he wants to  because that’s his motto. I only ask that he keep making great music for music’s sake. The world needs good music and Zayn makes great music. Like Katy Perry, he delivers what we want.

In the prophetic words of Tupac Shakur, “I aint mad at cha…Zayn. Pillowtalk hypnotizes you like John Lennon’s lyrics. People compare him to Justin Timberlake who left NSYNC but I say that’s some big shoes to fill….not to mention those huge cufflinks, custom-suit, and tie shit.
