Why Did One Direction Split?
One Direction announced their separation four years back in 2016. After working for six years together they decided to split but rivalry or jealousy was not the main reason. Members of the band wanted to launch their own careers and for this reason, they split. It was really heartbreaking for their millions of fans when the band announced that they would not renew their contract after the 2015 tour.
Why did Zayn Malik Quit One Direction Before their Breakup?
After a long wait, Zayn Malik finally spoke about his reason for breaking up with his band. In one interview Zayn Malik said that he had trust issues with people. He said:
“I am a 22-year old young boy. I need to relax, stress-free and want to spend some private time.”
Though Zayn left the band the group decided to continue. Now he is one of the most successful artists currently and his whole focus is on his own career.
One Direction Reunion 2020!
One Direction reunion is still a fantasy for fans around the world. According to some reports, recently there have been some changes in the band’s website but what these changes are has not been announced.
These changes are a ray of hope for fans. The bottom line of the band page is now “2020 Sony Music Entertainment”. Perhaps this could be a Sony effort to bring the band together once again and have a reunion.
When they were asked on social media to talk about the long-awaited One Direction reunion, Liam Payne made the statement
“Last time I said a date it was 2020 and we’re still not there yet so I’m just going to go with that and we will have to wait. Everyone’s enjoying doing their own thing.”
Looking at this comment, it’s obvious that fans might have to wait.
A reunion is very unlikely as every band member is more focused on his own solo career. As fans, we can only wait and hope that our favorite band will get together to perform. It has always been fun to watch them being together.
