This is it Directioners – One Direction’s final music video. For now.
In their last single from the “Made In the A.M.” album, “History”, One Direction takes us on a trip down memory lane. Fans can expect there to be lots of tears, laughter, screaming girls, group hugs, flashbacks etc.
And yes, Zayn Malik.
The “History” music video is basically a documentary of 1D’s rise to fame – from the moment Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik got put together on the “X Factor UK” by Simon Cowell to the boys as a foursome now.
There are plenty of nostalgic moments to relish on: their old music video clips, goofy never-before-seen footage, and fast forward to the current day where the quartet are dancing awkwardly in some sort of empty warehouse in front of a brick wall.
“History” was co-written by Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. Payne revealed that it was his idea to include some of the 1D fans as backing vocals for the chorus. “It’s really great because obviously that song is mainly about the fans and what they’ve done; I think it was important that they were a part of it, to close the album,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
For the uninitiated, consider this music video as a 1D: 101.
This is indeed a cute farewell for band. Now do you need extra tissue before you hit the replay button?
