Zayn Malik says he’s “proud of my boys” in One Direction’s new single “Drag Me Down.” The song is the band’s first new song since Malik, 22, went solo!
On Saturday night, the former member of the boy band tweeted “big love” to Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson following the release of their song, which skyrocketed to the top of iTunes within minutes.
“Proud of my boys the new single is sick. Big love. 🙂 x.”
The remaining four members have yet to respond to his tweet!
A little more than a week ago, One Direction was tweeting thanks to fans on its fifth anniversary as a group.
“Wowwwww 5 years 5 boys what an amazing journey I couldn’t thank you all ever enough and thank you Louis Niall Harry and Zayn for everything.” Malik retweeted Payne’s post, along with the message, “thanks bro!”
Malik stirred up the 1D fan base with his announcement earlier this week that he had been signed to RCA – saying now he could be “who I really am,” with the hashtag #realmusic. Some fans took that to be a dig at One Direction.
